Man accused of robbing Twiggs Co. truck stop

A Wilkinson County man is accused of robbing a truck stop with a rifle.

Christopher Scott Henson was arrested about four hours after the robbery, according to Twiggs County Sheriff Darren Mitchum.

He said it happened before 6 a.m. Sunday at the 96 Truck Stop on Highway 96.

Henson allegedly entered the store with a rifle and wearing a bandanna over his face and took $140 from the cash register.

But Mitchum says store video caught Henson's Ford Bronco on tape and store employees later identified him.

He was arrested around 10 a.m. in Wilkinson County. Mitchum said the robber used the money to buy crack cocaine.

Henson appeared Monday before a magistrate judge. He was denied bond and remains in the Twiggs County jail.
