BBQ sauce bandit off to prison after robbing three banks

Barnesville’s BBQ sauce bandit, 44-year-old Clifford Terrell, was sentenced to four years in federal prison Aug. 7 for robbing three middle Georgia banks in September 2017. The banks were located in Forsyth, Macon and Columbus. Tellers were threatened with demand notes. ’Over a period of 17 days, this individual terrorized hard working employees and citizens at these three banks. The defendant will now pay the consequences of his crime spree by spending the next four years in federal prison,’ U.S. attorney Charlie Peeler said. There is no parole in the federal system so Terrell will do the full four years. A strike team made up of local police and deputes, Bibb County deputies and agents of the U.S. Marshals Service, arrested Terrell without incident at Apt. B5 in the Arbor Trace complex on Southland Drive Sept. 27, 2017. Stains from a money dye pack from one of the robberies stained the back seat of Terrell’s Toyota Corolla and the jeans he was wearing at the time of his arrest. Terrell claimed the stains on his jeans were barbecue sauce. When he was searched, the demand note was in his pocket.
