MAN WITH 5-FOOT SNAKE ATTEMPTS TO ROB STORE MULTIPLE TIMES

A man is in jail after allegedly attempting to rob a store in Memphis three times, using a 5-foot snake.

Police say 26-year-old Reginald Cook is charged with two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.

Cook attempted to rob the Shell convenience store at 3599 Elvis Presley Boulevard and implied that he had a weapon.

Officers say Cook entered the store again and demanded money from the register. The victim said that Cook kept reaching into his clothing, implying that he had a gun, but Cook left the store after the victim refused.

The arrest report states Cook entered the store for the third time, but with a five-foot snake wrapped around his neck. Cook went up to the counter demanding money.

The store clerk pulled his gun in self-defense.

No money was taken and no injuries were sustained.

Officers arrived minutes later at the store and took Cook into custody.
