Pizza worker charged

THOMASVILLE — A former assistant manager of a pizza restaurant robbed at gunpoint Friday has been charged with armed robbery.

The suspect, Alexia Kalise Brown, 21, 1216 Magnolia St., surrendered at the Jail-Justice Center Monday night.

“Apparently, she knew the other party arrested and took part in setting up the robbery,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

Brown had recently been promoted to assistant manager at Little Caesar’s Pizza, 1516 E. Jackson St., and had a key to the business, said Louis Schofill, a police detective.

The restaurant, which was not open when the stickup took place, had cash on hand Friday for that day’s transactions.

Brown unlocked a door to let an employee in about 10 a.m.

Schofill said Brown left the door unlocked, and Bernard Carter, 20, 508 E. Webster St., entered the restaurant.

“She called him that morning and told him the money was there, and everything was a go,” Schofill explained. “He just opened the door and came in. She left it unlocked on purpose.”

Brown, who was interviewed on Friday morning, was considered to be involved.

Schofill said “too many factors” led detectives to believe it was “an inside job one way or another.”

The money — a little less than $5,000 — was recovered on Short Street Friday afternoon after Carter was arrested.

“He (Carter) buried the money in a hole at an abandoned house on the west side of town,” Schofill said.

Brown was allowed to surrender after she went to Albany Monday to pay a probation supervision fee on a shoplifting conviction.

The handgun used in the holdup has not been recovered.

Brown and Carter were denied bond and remain behind bars at the Thomas County Jail.
