THOMSON, Ga. -- Three Thomson men have been taken into custody on armed robbery and other criminal charges in connection with a recent string of robberies in Statesboro.

Police Chief Stan York identified the suspects as: Harvey Lee Green, 20, of B Street; Troy Donovan Hart, Jr., 20, of White Oak Road; and Devar Demingo Hampton, 20, of Pecan Avenue – all Thomson addresses.

They were arrested Monday night and taken to the Bullock County Jail.

Mr. Green has been charged with multiple crimes, Chief York said. Those charges include nine counts of armed robbery, nine counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, nine counts of possession of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school and two counts of Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act for possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Mr. Green also is wanted on an outstanding warrant in McDuffie County.

Charges, meanwhile, against Mr. Hart include two counts of armed robbery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and one count of possession of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school, according to Chief York in a press release.

The police chief said Mr. Hampton was charged with one count each of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Chief York said the arrests were the direct result of cooperation between officers of the Statesboro Police Department and the Georgia Southern University Police Department.

He said officers of his department during the course of their investigation discovered information that led them to three different apartment complexes in the city.

Those complexes included Campus Club Apartments, University Pines Apartments and The Pointe at Southern Apartments.

An ongoing investigation into those crimes is continuing, police said today.
