Arrests could solve holdup string

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.
