SAVANNAH, Ga. — Police in coastal Georgia say charges will likely be filed against a man who robbed a health food store and was caught while authorities were conducting a training exercise.

Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police spokesman Julian Miller says a 20-year-old man accused of robbing a GNC store near the area where SWAT and K-9 officers were training on Thursday was arrested after authorities canvassed the area to search for him.

Miller says an officer who was familiar with the suspect because of a previous case arrested him.

Miller says the man’s name will not be released until authorities are done investigating the incident.

Any way that gets them behind bars, whether on the job training, dragnet, stakeouts, raids.... suits me.
