TWIN FALLS — A Filer man is accused of holding a machete to a gas station cashier’s throat and robbing the till of $200 early Thursday.

Tyrell Hall, 33, was arrested Friday and arraigned in Twin Falls County Magistrate Court on charges of robbery, destruction of evidence and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, all felonies.

About 5:35 a.m. Thursday, a police affidavit said, Hall can be seen on surveillance video going into the Oasis Stop ‘N Go at 515 Washington St. N. The video then shows Hall walking behind the counter and holding the machete up to the cashier’s neck.

A few minutes later, video shows Hall crossing Filer Avenue West and running to a dark colored car parked at the gas pumps, the affidavit said. Hall gets into the car and the car then leaves the parking lot.

Later on Thursday, a Twin Falls police officer saw a car parked at a gas station on Sixth Avenue West that looked very similar to the car in the surveillance video and started talking to a woman in the car. The officer also said the man in the car, later identified as Hall, had a tattoo on his leg that looked like it matched the tattoo of the robber in the surveillance video.

At one point, the woman admitted to the officer that she’d taken Hall to a gas station that morning.

Another officer brought a drug-sniffing dog to the scene, and the dog alerted the officers to the presence of drugs, the affidavit said.

Police took Hall and the woman to the Twin Falls Police Department for questioning, where police say Hall admitted to the robbery.
