Local authorities charged Reginald McBride with armed robbery, aggravated assault, and burglary.

Police say McBride robbed two Valdosta residents in an apartment living room. He then reportedly forced them into separate rooms upstairs and fired a gun.

"It is a good arrest. I talked with detectives this morning about it. It's a big deal. Any time you have an armed robbery and any time you have a situation like this where someone goes into somebody's home and then holds them at gunpoint and then robs them, that's a big deal. I don't care where you're at, but for us it's a huge deal," said CAPT Brian Childress.

Police say McBride is also wanted in New York on weapons charges.
