Try 3 months for $3

An Orangeburg teen is accused of robbing Papa John’s at gunpoint on Jan. 2.

Jahmaun Archie, 17, of 746 Partridge Lane, Orangeburg, is facing one charge of armed robbery.

He appeared in municipal bond court on Monday morning and received a bond of $25,000 on his personal recognizance.

Archie was allegedly armed when he entered Papa John’s, located at 2372 Chestnut Street, at 10:20 p.m.

He wore a mask and “grabbed a bucket of money” from the safe, an arrest warrant said.

He allegedly attempted to leave the store, but an employee tackled him and removed his mask.

Archie then helped clean up the mess and left, the warrant said.

An incident report said that Archie told co-workers that “it was all a joke.”

When he exited the store, he took a pizza with him, the report said.

The ordeal was captured on video cameras.

If he’s convicted of armed robbery, Archie faces a mandatory minimum term of a decade in prison and a maximum sentence of 30 years.
