By Jim Mustian, The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

A Columbus man admitted robbing a 50-year-old man at gunpoint and firing three rounds at his pit bull, police said today.
Edgar Harris, 18, pleaded not guilty to charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Investigators said Harris was detained Friday night after he approached a police officer and asked to use his cell phone. The officer noticed a revolver in Harris’ waistband and detained him.
Further investigation revealed Harris allegedly robbed a man in his yard on Lakeside Drive. Police said Harris made off with close to $500 cash.
In an interview with investigators, Harris admitted robbing the man, police said, saying he was homeless and needed money.
Harris is being held without bond in the Muscogee County Jail.
