Ex-Employee Crashes Car Into Twin Peaks Restaurant & Starts Fire!

Evan CroyleAn armed citizen held the Twin Peaks arsonist until cops arrived.

Roland Evan Croyle, 45 (pictured), has been taken into custody for allegedly crashing his vehicle into the Augusta restaurant on Monday and setting the business on fire.

According to the sheriff’s office, “a possible ex-employee of the business attempted to crash his vehicle into the building. Upon exiting the vehicle, the suspect … set the restaurant on fire.”

That’s when a private citizen detained the suspect at gunpoint. Richmond County deputies tackled the suspect eventually taking him into custody.

WGAC’s Austin Rhodes is reporting that the suspect “drove an SUV through the front entrance of Twin Peaks restaurant off Robert Daniel Parkway and then tossed in tanks of fuel before igniting them.”

Witnesses to this incident are requested to contact RCSO’s Criminal Investigators at 706-821-1020 or 706-821-1000.

“The suspect will be charged with Arson while more charges are pending,” sheriff’s Sgt. Monica Belser said in a press release.

      No doubt its getting crazier every day. But iys not just Augusta…its the whole country. But as crazy as it seems, I bet we would all take living in the CSRA versus living in say…the Middle East. Ennjoy the time you have here and do the best you can for your family – never know when Zero Day will come

        I made near the same statement not to long ago, most has to do with drugs (watch ” Americas War on Drugs” and you will be amazed at what you will discover) and the lack of morals and just proper good old fashion up bringing. This world has gotten too damn fast and we are forgetting how to treat each other as friends , neighbors and even family , you also take care.
