Augusta Police Arrest Child in Connection With Big Apple Robbery Where Firearm Was Displayed
According to a press release from Augusta Police Department Deputy Chief, Kevin Lully, a suspect was taken into custody in connection with last week's robbery of the Stone Street Big Apple.
Police say that on Thursday, Augusta Police officers were able to take a juvenile from Augusta into custody in connection to the robbery. Police were doing a traffic stop on Memorial Drive in Augusta Thursday.
During that traffic stop, area detectives were able to positively identify all of the subjects in the vehicle, including the person police say was responsible for the previous week's robbery. Because the suspect is a minor, the identity (name) and age of the juvenile have been withheld.
Lully said that this incident remains under investigation and is still asking for anyone who may have additional information regarding the robbery to call Augusta Police Department's Criminal Investigation Bureau at 207.626.2370 ex 3418.
