(Shelby County) A 17-year-old was arrested Thursday night and charged for robbing two people going through a Dairy Queen drive-thru.

The 17-year-old is believed to be responsible for the armed robberies of two customers on Monday and Tuesday.

The customers told police that while ordering at the drive-thru, someone in a black ski mask and dark clothes opened their driver side doors and demanded money.

Several SCSO teams set up surveillance on Thursday, and just after 8 p.m., saw someone crawling through a field behind the restaurant.

That person then ran behind a dumpster, where authorities caught him.

The 17-year-old had a .22-caliber pistol and was wearing a ski mask.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, criminal attempt robbery, and possession of a firearm.
