Two Venice men have been arrested in connection to a Saturday morning robbery.

Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office officials say a manager at the Sonny’s BBQ in Nokomis asked 23-year old William Shepherd for a ride to collect the restaurant’s bank deposits.

Once he had the money inside the car, 24-year old Dylan Paquin, who had been hiding in the backseat, pulled a knife on the manager and stole the money.

Both men are now charged with armed robbery- the manager was not injured, and the stolen deposits were recovered.
