ACCPD searches for armed robbery suspects

Athens-Clarke County Police are searching for suspects in the reported armed robbery of an auto parts store on Hawthorne Avenue: workers in the store tell police they were made to lie on the floor by two men wearing surgical masks. 

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office says an Athens man arrested and booked into the Oconee County jail after allegedly shoplifting at a Wal Mart store on Epps Bridge Road was armed at the time of the crime. In addition to the theft charges, 24 year-old Shaquavion Adkins (pictured above) is facing counts related to the gun possession and the fact that had been previously convicted on felon charges and was thus not legally allowed to have the handgun.

A Newton County woman arrested after police say she shot her child’s father and his girlfriend is now facing a murder charge: police in Covington say charges for 22 year-old Dalanna Bailey were upgraded from aggravated assault after the death of 27 year-old La’Peachah Nash.
