Fourth Suspect Arrested in Holdups

Newton County authorities are on their way to Chicago to bring back a man accused in armed robberies.

Demetrius Pierce is facing charges in a case that involved back-to-back robberies in February 2010. A nationwide search led to his arrest.

The two robberies happened overnight at convenience stores, the BP station in Lake and a convenience store in Lawrence, within minutes of each other.

Surveillance equipment captured images of the suspects. Three other people have been arrested and charged in the case.
