Roseburg man charged with Harrisburg bar robbery

A bar patron stepped outside Saturday night, only to return with a beanie over his face and rob the establishment, the Linn County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies arrested Billy Joe Crawford, 54, of Roseburg, Ore., at a Harrisburg home late Saturday night on suspicion of third-degree robbery.

Invesitgators believe Crawford had been at MacEnzi's Bar and Grill, 262 Smith St., in Harrisburg. The sheriff's office said Crawford stepped outside, then returned with a dark jacket and a beanie hat pulled over his face.

According to investigators, Crawford stepped behind the bar. When the bartender told him to leave, he pushed her and grabbed a money bag with a small amount of cash inside before running out the door, the sheriff's office believes.
