Tallahassee, Florida (Press Release) --

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office and the Tallahassee Police Department have solved a series of robberies. On Friday, September 3, 2010 a concerned citizen provided information to detectives from LCSO’s Violent Crimes Unit and Investigators from TPD’s Violent Crimes Unit. The citizen provided information that enabled detectives to serve a search warrant at 1320 Conklin Street #31. During the search warrant, detectives recovered clothing and a firearm.

LCSO also located Christopher Adams, 20, Adrian Jackson, 30, Jarmaal Cowart, 32, and Jeremiah Franklin, 16. Through interviews, video surveillance and forensic evidence, detectives and investigators believe all four men are connected to the following robberies:

Express Lane – 5648 Blountstown Highway - 06-21-10 (LCSO)
Family Dollar Store – 4753 Blountstown Highway - 06-26-10 (LCSO)
Family Dollar Store – 4753 Blountstown Highway - 07-18-10 (LCSO)

Family Dollar Store – Capital Circle Southeast (TPD)

Express Lane – 3417 Fred George Road (TPD)
Burger King – 3570 Apalachee Parkway (TPD)
Dollar General Store – 3802 North Monroe (TPD)

Sheriff Larry Campbell stated, “This case proves that the public does possess the ability to positively impact our community by working with law enforcement. It’s also a great example of how well the two agencies work together to accomplish the goal of making Leon County a safer place to live.”

Detectives and Investigators are continuing to examine evidence in other cases as well, in order to determine if the group is responsible for any other robberies in the area. These investigations
are continuing and additional charges are likely.

    Good job LCSO & TPD. I agree with Mark. Apparently the threat of prison doesn't work for a lot of people. However, keeping these gentlemen in prison will most likely cost the taxpayers less than if they were out breeding.

    These older adult suspects should get an additional charge for leading the 16 year old into this type of criminal activity. If it was a girl for sex it would be called statutory rape because she is to young to make the right decision on her own. This is the same thing. These adults should be charged with "contributing to the delinquency of a minor."

    Mark, it sounds like you want to bring Sharia Law to Tallahassee. Are you going to be a founding member of the Tally-ban? :)

    No,don't send them to jail to rot.That would mean that I would still have to support them with my tax dollars...they are probably the ones who broke into my house two years ago and stole stuff from me(much of it with little more than sentimental value). I say if they were caught red handed, string them up from the nearest tree. Immediate crime, immediate punishment.
