KILLEEN (July 29, 2014) Dadrian Lee Moore, 22, was in the Bell County Jail Tuesday charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in connection with a gunpoint holdup Friday at a Dollar General Store in Killeen.

A store employee who went outside to collect shopping carts at the store at 3108 East Veterans Memorial Blvd. told police that a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and wearing a bandana over his face grabbed her hair and pointed a gun at her.

The robber then forced her inside the store and ordered her and a co-worker to open the cash register.

He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Moore told an investigator that he robbed the store because he and his girlfriend were having financial problems, according to an arrest affidavit.
