The second incident happened five days later, on Saturday, December 23. During this incident, the suspect attempted to rob the Little Caesars Pizza on highway 92 while armed with a handgun.

Powers was booked into the Cochise County Jail on one count of armed robbery, one count of attempted robbery, three counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of kidnapping. He was previously convicted of armed robbery in 2014.
