Tallahassee, Florida - Feb. 20, 2012 -

The Tallahassee Police Department has arrested a suspect connected with two recent robbery cases. The first case was on February 7th, 2012. In this case, the victim said he was walking in the 2000 block of West Pensacola Street when he was approached
by a black male, who said he had a gun and demanded his money. The suspect then forced the victim to walk to a nearby ATM and withdrawal money.

In the second case, a delivery driver for Jimmie John’s was making a delivery at 2166 West Pensacola Street. During the delivery he was confronted by a black male who implied he had a gun. The victim, fearing for his life, turned over all of his food and money.

Both victims provided investigators with a similar description of the suspect. A patrol Sergeant remembered having contact with a male who matched the suspect’s description and gave this information to investigators. The suspect was positively identified by the victims and was subsequently arrested for both robberies.

    I am also a family member that is just as disappointed as everyone else that knows about this crime. He had no right to do what he did and he should definitely pay for his mistake. However, like my relative stated...he made this mistake on his own and is NOT a representation of what values and standards our family holds. Those that know US know that we are respectable people. Think about that before you let ignorance come out of your mouthes.

    It is a shame that people say he should not be living. Wow really! I guess you must be perfect. I want you to think about how the rest of his family feels when they look at your comment, or his kids. Yes what he did is dumb, but still my family. Go to church my friend. Think before you speak. Its what adults do

    It is outrageous that this thug is still alive. Shame on you "citizens". Have you no personal integrity, no sense of community pride? No feeling of social responsibility ~at all~? Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. No wonder John Marks is still the mayor of this town!

      You know what is outrageous! The comments you people (white or black) type. Oh btw, his family is not in jail. He just makes stupid decisions. I am his younger brother and I am very successful and work for the government with a BS degree and about to get my masters. Make good money and very intelligent. So do not make stupid remarks about my whole family. If your life is that bad, that you want to put down other people that are already lost. I pray for you and got nothing but love. God 1st..you need to pray for yourself

    wouldn't work if you gave him a job, would rather rob and hurt people, because he is SCUM !

    Wouldn't it have been terrific if one of the victims just happened to have a permit to carry a concealed weapon? If they did, we taxpayers wouldn't have to house, feed and clothe this suspect for the foreseeable future.

    No whites folks didnt make him do it.. if he did it, it was because he made that choice to do it and now he has to deal w/ the consequences. Every race has people they are disgraced by but please note these people does not generialize or provides an accurate example of that race. If he did it shame on him, he will deal with the consequences. Thank God no one was hurt.
