NJ man arrested for robbing a local restaurant in Paulsboro

A man by the name of Dester Pierce, 26, of Paulsboro was arrested around 3:45pm on April 27, 2017. 3:36pm local police authorities responded to a call at a local restaurant of someone trying to rob them at knife point. When police arrived at the scene they spot a heavy-set early aged fat man trying to flee the scene carrying in his hands what seems to be 2 cheesesteaks. Police engaged in a brief foot chase which led to Pierces’ arrest. When asked what were you thinking by an officer, Pierce responded by saying, “its a habit that I can’t get over.”
