Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Richard Glenn Taylor, 56, Thursday morning on a charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Cooke set Taylor’s bail at $100,000.

On Aug. 15, Killeen police went to a Mickey’s in the 4800 block of Westcliff Road in Killeen in response to a call of aggravated robbery involving a knife. An employee told police the robber asked for cigarettes. After he turned around, the robber pointed a knife toward the employee and demanded money. The employee gave the robber the money, according to an arrest affidavit.

The robber was described as “an older white male with gray hair and a gray beard,” the affidavit read.

The store manager came during the investigation and gave police access to the video surveillance. The manager said the robber was a former employee and identified him as Taylor, according to the affidavit.

In a photo lineup, the employee identified Taylor as the person who robbed the store, according to the affidavit.

Police arrested Taylor on Thursday morning on a warrant at the intersection of Westcliff Road and Hooten Street.
