Armed Robbery Suspect

The final suspect in back-to-back robberies in Newton County is back from Chicago.

Twenty-one year old Demetrius Pierce was taken into custody in Chicago last week following a nationwide search.

He was one of four suspects charged in connection with two robberies that happened overnight in February in the Lake and Lawrence communities. Both occurred within minutes of each other.

Bond for Pierce, who is from Forest, was set at $60,000. Aside from the burglary and armed robbery charges, he could also face a charge for aggravated assault.
