GPD: Four arrested in armed robbery, including juveniles, ages 12 and 15


STAFF REPORT :::

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the alleged armed robbery of a Marco’s Pizza delivery driver.

Griffin Police Department Uniform Patrol Division officers were on Thursday night dispatched to Marco’s Pizza in response to the report of an armed robbery in the vicinity of Turner Street.

A delivery driver reported that he had been robbed at gunpoint while out on a delivery.
Officials say the driver said that an order had been placed with a delivery address of 603 Turner St. Upon arriving at that address, the driver saw a male standing on the porch.

The driver reported the man placed a gun to his head and demanded all the money in his possession, which was estimated between $100 to $200.

Authorities say that based on the description of the suspects and their clothing provided by the delivery driver, an officer of the Criminal Apprehension and Gang Enforcement (CAGE) Unit reported he had been out with the four subjects just prior to receipt of the call from Marco’s.

Additional officers responded to the area and four suspects were located, detained and transported to the GPD pending further investigation.

Two adults and two juveniles have been charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

Arrested were 19-year-old Djuan head, 18-year-old Andre Head, a 12-year-old male juvenile and a 15-year-old female juvenile.

Investigators also say they received information that will assist in the closure of another Turner Street armed robbery case reported last week, in addition to a similar incident that occurred outside city limits.

Additional charges and arrests are expected to be forthcoming.

“These incidents will not be tolerated and those who choose to commit these crimes will be pursued, charged and prosecuted,” said Chief Mike Yates.
