Waco police have charged Rodney Scott, 35, with robbery and criminal trespass after he robbed a victim in the drive-thru of Taco Bell on Sixth Street on Wednesday night.

The victim said Scott walked up to the victim’s car asking for money. After the victim gave Scott a dollar bill, he demanded more money and reached toward his jacket pocket. At that point the victim threw change at Scott and drove away in fear that Scott had a weapon. The victim called police at 11:42 p.m. Wednesday.

Scott’s bond was set at $25,000 for robbery and $5,000 for criminal trespass. He has not posted bond and is being held at McLennan County Jail.

Waco police does not believe Wednesday night’s incident to be related to other robberies that have taken place around Baylor within the last two months.
