CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office arrested two Chick-fil-A employees after police say one of them robbed the restaurant at gunpoint.

Around 7 p.m. Thursday, police said off-duty employee Jeremy Huffman, 19, walked into Chick-fil-A on Eagle Drive in Woodstock and "lingered" while the manager completed his closing duties.

Huffman then pulled out a revolver and pointed it at the manager and demanded money from the safe.

The manager gave Huffman an undisclosed amount of cash and Huffman ran from the restaurant.

During a search of the area, Jacob Rybak, also an employee of Chick-fil-A, was found nearby in the woods along Towne Lake Parkway.

Police determined Rybak was an accomplice in the robbery and he was taken in to custody.

Shortly after midnight, deputies located Huffman at a home on Fieldstone Way in the Towne Lake Hills East community.

After deputies attempted to contact Huffman for many hours with no response, the SWAT team entered the home and took Huffman into custody without incident.

The cash and revolver were recovered at the time of Huffman's arrest.

Huffman is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and obstruction of an officer and is being held without bond at the Cherokee County Jail.

Rybak is also charged with armed robbery and is being held without bond.
