Man facing charges for fast food robberies faces new charges

SELMA, Texas – A man already facing charges in at least three fast food restaurant robberies is facing new charges.

Steven Joyner was charged Monday with aggravated robbery. This is in addition to the aggravated robbery charge he was booked on last Friday, which was in connection to crimes at the Church's Chicken on W.W. White road, a Metro PCS and a Subway.

The latest charge is for a robbery at Freddy’s Frozen Custard in Selma. Police there said on March 8, Joyner and another man robbed the fast food restaurant while wearing ski masks.

The pair took off with more than $1,100.

A similar attempted robbery happened just 45 minutes away at another Freddy’s on Highway 281 on the North Side, but the suspects, believed to be Joyner and his friend, were too late. The restaurant was closed.

Selma police worked with San Antonio police and Live Oak police to identify Joyner as their suspect.
