ATHENS, Ga. – It won't go down as the most difficult crime they've had to solve.
It did take police in Athens, Georgia, several days to track down the suspect in last week's armed robbery of a Golden Pantry convenience store. But they had one strong lead.
Before pulling a knife, authorities say 28-year-old Demetrius Robinson filled out a job application, apparently leaving his real name. Investigators say he was trying to kill time until the store emptied of customers.
Robinson managed to evade immediate capture by using his uncle's phone number and a phony address. But police say they got an anonymous tip and arrested him yesterday morning.
Authorities say Robinson is also a suspect in several other armed robberies.
