Darius Pollard, one of a trio of alleged robbers whose arrests in November cleared nine armed robberies, is connected to at least one armed robbery by a candy bar wrapper, according to court testimony.

Pollard, 17, appeared in Columbus Recorder's Court Thursday morning on one count of criminal attempt of armed robbery after allegedly flashing a pistol at the Wynnton Road Rite Aid on Halloween.

Pollard pled not guilty to the charge.

Pollard approached the Rite Aid's cashier and purchased a pack of Nutter Butters; and while the drawer was opened, flashed a medium-caliber pistol at the cashier and said "give me all you got," according to court testimony.

Det. Joel McNeal said that Pollard then fled the store, but a warrant was later issued for him on the strength of the surveillance video and the fingerprints lifted from the Nutter Butters, which Pollard left behind.

Judge Michael Joyner set a $10,000 for the charge. The case will continue in Muscogee Superior Court.
