BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

Bristol police said they arrested a man who tried to rob a local restaurant with a power drill Sunday night.

Police said around 10:45 p.m. several officers and a K9 unit were sent to The Whole Donut on Burlington Avenue after getting word of an attempted robbery.

Officers arrived at the scene within one minute, and spoke with employees to get a description of the man they said tried to rob them.

After getting that description, a man was located a short distance from the restaurant. A K9 unit tracked to where the man was and located evidence including a mask, latex-type gloved, a spare shirt in a bag as well as a power drill that resembled a gun.

The man, 49-year-old Robert Moody, of Irving Street, made comments about the incident that police said implicated himself in the attempted robbery.

Moody was arrested and charged with first degree attempted robbery, attempted larceny and breach of peace.

No one was injured in the incident and police said Moody didn't get inside the restaurant.

He was held on $50,000 bond and was expected to appear in court.

Police said Moody was also charged with failure to appear in court from a previous charge.
