The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office yesterday issued warrants against a homeless man for first-degree attempted robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon in a bizarre hold up earlier this week.

St. Louis police say Terry Madlock, 33, used an ax in an attempted robbery at a Jack in the Box restaurant on South Kingshighway around 8 a.m. Wednesday. A police officer responding to a call from the restaurant arrived minutes later and Madlock dropped the weapon without incident. No one was injured in the failed heist.

Madlock is being held on a $150,000 bond.

This morning Daily RFT contacted the restaurant chain's CEO, Jack in the Box, for comment. Here's what he had to say:

*No, Jack doesn't have a five-o'clock shadow. Those are just my horrible Photoshop skills, trying to erase his grin.
