HARTSELLE — Some two weeks after his grandson allegedly robbed him using a hydraulic-jack handle as a weapon, Pa-Paw has his money back, authorities said.
Morgan County sheriff's Investigator Kyle Wilson said the $300 that Walter Ray Brown reported stolen from his wallet turned up in the hollow rod at the top of a set of window blinds inside his grandson's residence.
Wilson had found $5 cash in the yard between Brown's home and the 290 Rocky Ford Road residence of Daniel Ray Brown, 22, shortly after the robbery Jan. 9.
Wilson said Daniel Brown entered Walter Brown's home armed with the jack handle and wearing a ski mask and told the 72-year-old, "This is a robbery, I need your money, and I mean it, Pa-Paw."
Daniel Brown, who Wilson said as of Thursday continued to deny that he was the man behind the mask, remained in Morgan County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond, charged with armed robbery.
