Bridgeport Dairy Queen manager is relieved that robber entered plea


The news that Alexander McKinley has admitted his guilt in the armed hold-up of the Bridgeport Dairy Queen was met with a huge sigh of relief among the Dairy Queen staff.

You may recall the store was held up in November 2017 by a man with his shirt pulled over his face, holding a knife and demanding money.

He got away with about $200.

Alexander McKinley was charged with aggravated robbery in that holdup, and now he has entered a plea of guilty as charged, according to Belmont County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Flanagan.

The DQ’s general manager, Lisa Reed, said she is extremely pleased that justice has been served.

She said the incident was shocking and traumatic for the store staff, and it forced them to install security cameras both inside and out.

She said staff members had been dreading having to testify at the trial, and now they won’t have to.
