Halifax Co. Deputies: Man Attempts to Steal Cash, Takes Soda Instead

Halifax Co., VA - The Halifax County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who they say went after some cash, but settled for something much easier to come by.

Investigators say around 1:20 am on Sunday, a man entered the Wilco Station on Route 58 in South Boston attempting to buy beer.
The man was denied and left the store, but police say the man returned wielding a screwdriver and demanding cash.
The suspect tried to open the register and had no luck, so they say he took off with a Mountain Dew instead.
Police say the man was driving a dark Honda Civic.
Anyone with information is asked to please contact the Halifax County Sheriff's Office.
