Harlem man, girlfriend charged in March armed robbery

  • Follow Latest News

A Columbia County grand jury charged a Harlem man and his Grovetown girlfriend in connection to a March armed robbery.

Christopher Grier, of the 700 block of Knox Road in Harlem, was charged with criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and by a convicted felon, according to court documents released today.

Mr. Grier’s girlfriend, Shashawna Diane Odell, 27, of the 500 block of Lou Lane in Grovetown, was charged with hindering apprehension of a criminal and tampering with evidence. She was arrested March 29 and was released from the Columbia County Detention Center the same day after posting a $15,000 bond, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Police say Ms. Odell admitted driving the getaway car March 27 while Mr. Grier used a gun to rob two Grovetown people in their home. She then voluntarily drove Mr. Grier to Alabama and disposed of the gun used in the crime. The gun was recovered on Kings Way in Harlem.

Mr. Grier is still on the run from police.

The Grovetown Department of Public Safety is offering a reward for information leading to Mr. Grier’s arrest. Anyone with information about Mr. Grier’s whereabouts should call the department at (706) 863-1212.

Reach Valerie Rowell at (706) 868-1222, ext. 110 or

so i have a question for mrs.

so i have a question for mrs. Valerie Rowell if in this article you say "She was arrested March 29 and was released from the Columbia County Detention Center the same day after posting a $15,000 bond" and in your last article you said, "She was held without bond Monday in the Columbia County Detention Center, according to jail records." and monday was march 30 and it was again WITHOUT bond.. how was she released the same day..march 29? i was just wondering. knowing this makes me ponder the other articles i read from this newspaper. once again is this just one of those media things that we dont get the whole truth or is it just that there was not really any research done before publishing an article for all of the public to read and believe?

ok totsalot maybe you should

ok totsalot maybe you should reread the article. she is not being charged with helping rob anyone nor did she do it. anyways i dont want to get in one of those arguments on here like people like to do, but your right it is such a small detail that is clearly on records in the detention center. if they can not get such small details right how am i supposed to believe the bigger things. esp. when one article a person rights goes against the other.

Hey Totsalot. IT

Hey Totsalot. IT SAYS......This and IT SAYS ....That.......The point is.....The truth is not being told in the newspaper. She never admitted helping this criminal do anything. She was a victim in this crime and then victimized again by the Grovetown Police Department who refused to come to her aid. Watch this unravel. It's going to get interesting!
