Alleged robbery accomplice arrested

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

A Milledgeville woman has been arrested in connection to last week’s string of armed robberies. 

Latasha White was placed in police custody Monday and is considered a person of interest in the case. She allegedly was present in three robberies that took place Thursday night and early Friday morning. Shawn Horatio Hill was arrested last week in the case. 

The first incident occurred at 111 S. Wayne St. Jet South store next to Dairy Queen Thursday evening. A black male shoved the clerk back and stole an unknown amount of cash. He reportedly left the scene in a black vehicle headed toward downtown. 

At 2:44 a.m. Friday, a man fitting the same description as the first case robbed the Golden Pantry at 204 E. Hancock St. In both instances, the suspect reportedly entered the store, waited in line and shoved the clerk to get money out of register before fleeing in a compact black car. 

While continuing to elude officers, the suspect struck again at 6:13 a.m. at the Flash Foods on 600 N. Jefferson St. MPD reviewed the store videotape and identified the same male suspect in all three robberies.

Contact was made with the Putnam County Sheriff's office with regards to the case. Officers received a call about a stolen vehicle in the Putnam County area matching the suspect's getaway car. MPD identified Hill as the suspect and officials said that he was being sought locally and nationwide. 

“Thanks for Putnam County Sheriff's Office for getting us information on the vehicle and the possible suspect. Without them we wouldn't have had any clue who this guy was,” Maj. Reggie Hill of the Milledgeville Police Department said.

The fugitive continued to elude city and county officers Friday. The suspect stole a PT Cruiser as well. 

A Putnam County deputy spotted the car and turned around on it, which led to a chase and the arrest.
