Police have arrested Bobby Earl Haynes, 54. He is charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. He is also facing robbery by force charges in connection with a separate incident.


Bobby Earl Haynes, 54, has been charged with felony counts of armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and aggravated assault on a police officer, Lt. Lewis Blanchard said.

About 6:50 p.m. Saturday, Haynes brandished a firearm and demanded money from the clerk at Auto­Zone at 2946 Deans Bridge Road, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. A nearby deputy confronted him, and Haynes fired a shot in the deputy’s direction before fleeing toward Wheeless Road. The deputy returned fire and was not injured.

Haynes has also been charged with felony robbery by force in a separate incident.

Police say that in the Dec. 9 robbery of Family Dollar at 2914 Deans Bridge Road, Haynes threw two registers on the floor and grabbed the money before fleeing the scene.

The revolving door sentencing that happens in Richmond County. courts will insure that his guy will get a slap on the wrist. The prosecutors and judges will see to it that he's out victimizing decent folks before too long. They may plea him down to "first Offender status" and put him on probation.

Goodbye is right Owens.

Goodbye is right Owens. Firing at a LEO will get him enough time to die in jail.

Where is the real story?

Sorry to be so mean, but I feel like I got a Reader Digest version when there is a lot more.

Who caught him
What made it possible to locate him
Where did they catch him
How did they catch him and did he resist or run up and jump in the RCSO Car.

What the reader got was:
"Police have arrested a man who fired a shot at a Richmond County sheriff’s deputy Saturday evening."

With the rest of the story a rehash of the old info.
