Robbery suspect: 'I'm fixing to go on the run'

Dill

JONESBORO -- The suspect named in the Goobertown Dollar General armed robbery was going to make a run for it.

Craighead County Sheriff's Office deputies responded Saturday to a robbery at the store at 7415 Arkansas 351. Nathan Lee Dill, 20, of Paragould, entered the store wearing dark clothes and a white mask and was armed with a handgun, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Dill retrieved money from the cash register and the safe before running east on Craighead 792. Jonesboro Police K9 Argus tracked the suspect's glove, shoe and black Kia Optima by a grey shed near Craighead 772, according to a JPD incident report.

While holding perimeter near the shed, a nearby resident told deputies that their dogs were barking at something under a storage building, it read. They found Dill hiding under the building.

The money and clothes worn during the robbery were recovered near the grey shed. The gun has not been located, according to the affidavit.

"Dill said he did it because he was laid off and needed money," it read.

District Court Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause to charge Dill with aggravated robbery. Before setting bond he informed the suspect that he was aware of a phone call he made in jail.

Fowler said Dill told his mother, "I"m fixing to go on the run Monday after making bond."

Because of this, Fowler set bond at $750,000, cash or surety.

The judge also found probable cause for charges and set bond for the following:
