Bedford Co., VA - The Bedford County Sheriff's Office has arrested one person and is looking for another after an attempted robbery at Taco Bell.

Kandace Moore, 20, of Forest has been charged with breaking and entering with the intent to commit robbery.

A warrant is out for the arrest of Elton Short III, 22, of Evington.

Surveillance video captured a man jumping through the drive-thru window of the Taco Bell in Forest back in May.

The Sheriff's office says the man had a gun and tried to get money. But three clerks said the store had already been locked up for the night, so he got away with nothing.

Officials say Short is 5'10, 143 lbs with brown hair and green eyes.

If you have any information on where Short is, call Crime Stoppers at 888-798-5900.
