Arrests could solve holdup string

  • Follow Latest News

Richmond County investigators say they have arrested three suspects and seek a fourth they believe responsible for a string of area holdups and carjackings.

Deputies arrested three men Wednesday night after spotting them in a white pickup truck that resembled a vehicle seen at some of the robberies.

The men and their charges are listed as:

* Martin Salance Harvey, 21, of the 2300 block of Barton Chapel Road. He is charged with three counts of armed robbery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and hijacking a motor vehicle.

*Tevin Demarcus Bell, 17, of the 2300 block of Dublin Drive. He is charged with five counts of armed robbery, four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, two counts of hijacking a motor vehicle, kidnapping and theft by taking motor vehicle.

* Kavuan Bernard Moore, 20, of the 3600 block of Rome Way. He is charged with six counts of armed robbery, five counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, two counts of hijacking motor vehicle, kidnapping and theft by taking motor vehicle.

Since the arrests, investigators have identified a 19-year-old woman they believe is also connected to the crimes. Mica Rochelle Gray, of Barker Drive, is wanted on armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges.

The suspects are believed to have committed robberies since Sept. 24, when a woman was held at gunpoint at the Sprint Store at 2202 Gordon Highway then made to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash.

Other incidents include armed robberies at the Super 8 Motel on Gordon Highway, the Knights Inn on Boy Scout Road, the China Kitchen on Peach Orchard Road and the Tuesday robbery of the Ramada Inn at 2154 Gordon Highway.

Anyone with information on Ms. Gray can call the Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

CarlA what does the democrats

CarlA what does the democrats have to do with this..i am assuming there was no crime whatsoever when bush was in the whitehouse and the republican party had control of both houses....before you assume that i am a democrat, i am not but statements like that shows a lack of analytical ability and sound reasoning, judgement or common sense...it's a crime pure and simple and these pieces of human debris need to be put in jail until they are no longer a threat to society(about 50 years)

This is a message to all you

This is a message to all you robbers in the CRSA. The people who
work everyday like myself we carry guns also, and the people we work with carry guns, be very careful in you next attempt to take
what honest hard working people work for, it could just be your last.
Signed the merchants of the CSRA.

That's right lifelong, there

That's right lifelong, there was crime when Bush was president. I'm sure these same scumbags were at then as well. And I'm sure they voted for all the dems. After all it's the dems that look to give handouts to and provide excuse for these thugs. Had they been in Detroit they would have been waiting in line for "they money" from Obama's "stash."

mrlonglelgs - You are so

mrlonglelgs - You are so right! I carry a gun (often more than one). And many of the good, honest, hard working, tax paying people I work with carry guns. And we like shooting them. We are good at it. We practice at the range often. I hope I never have to use it, but I certainly will if I have to.

I myself recently bought a gun for the house AND the car. I blame it on the Augusta Chronicle! But I feel much safer and will protect what is mine. Just remember though..."immediate danger" or these animals will sue you in court., and win.

I would not recommend keeping a gun in your car. That is how many bad guys get their guns. They steal them from vehicles... Get a GA Firearms License (GFL) and carry it with you...

Here is SC and in GA we are protected by the "stand your ground" law. Check out this article. Makes me proud to be an American! http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19680321/

The Stand Your Ground laws

The Stand Your Ground laws are an expansion of the Castle Doctrine, or Make My Day laws. You can now take your castle with you where ever you go, and defend it with deadly force. How cool is that?! Bad Guys Beware!! Victims have rights too!

Hepkikyo, I'll look into that. I live in SC though. So do I need one to carry in Ga? I'd assume so.

GA and SC do not honor each

GA and SC do not honor each other's firearm licenses. So if you get a Carry Permit in SC, you will not be able to use it to carry in GA. To carry in GA, you will need to get a New Hampshire "out of state" firearm license. The process is lengthy and cumbersome, but I have known people to do it.

No wonder these guys started a life of crime, they probably couldn't pronounce or spell their own names. What was their mamas thinking when they were named?

Look folks, you're way off base on this name crap. These names don't signify any thing racial. What the unusual names signify are YOUNG PARENTS. Get over it, willya?
