Man Arrested In Marianna Gas Station Robbery

A man who attempted to rob a gas station in Marianna, Florida Thursday night is behind bars.

45-year-old William Benjamin Paulk of Marianna allegedly walked into Stephen's Chevron on Highway 71 South in Marianna and with a screw driver demanded money from the clerk.

Paulk then reportedly fled in his white four door car with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police found Paulk in possession of evidence from the robbery. He later confessed.

Paulk was also a person of interest in a robbery two weeks ago.

He is being held in the Jackson County correctional facility.
