A man accused of trying to rob a fast food restaurant in Osage Beach is in custody after a standoff with authorities. The suspect was taken into custody around 6pm. Shortly after 11am he allegedly went through the drive-through, placed an order, and paid for it, then showed the teller a gun and demanded money. The teller closed the window and backed away and the suspect fled the scene. Awhile later, authorities found his vehicle at a home off of Baydy Peak. That led to the ensuing standoff with law enforcement. A nearby neighbor said she was concerned by the scene she found when she returned home.
The Camden County Sheriff’s office blocked traffic on Baydy Peak until after the suspect was taken into custody.
