Robbery Suspect Nabbed

A man accused of robbing a state-run liquor store in Demopolis Tuesday afternoon is behind bars after a manhunt that lasted about six hours.

The suspect, Jerry Jerome Blakes, 33, of Selma, allegedly tried to elude authorities in a high speed chase through six counties before being caught.

Blakes faces charges of first degree robbery and receiving stolen property. Officials say the vehicle Blakes was driving was reported stolen in April from Pascagoula, Miss.
