CONYERS -- Law enforcement officials have identified three suspects believed to be involved in the June armed robberies of two local businesses. One of the suspects is in jail, while warrants have been issued for the arrests of the other two.
Conyers Police Lt. Jackie Dunn said Antwain Boglin, of 1159 Millcrest Walk, was charged in connection with the June 8 armed robbery of the Subway restaurant on Sigman Road after authorities discovered he was in jail on an unrelated drug charge. A warrant has been issued for his alleged accomplice in the Subway robbery, Derrick Cummings, 19, of 1133 Railroad St.
Cummings and another man are also suspects in the June 11 armed robbery of Elliott's Grocery located at the corner of Sigman and Rockbridge roads.
According to Dunn, on the Saturday evening following the Friday night Subway robbery, Boglin and Cummings were sitting on Cummings' front porch on Railroad Street smoking marijuana.
"An officer was getting gas at the city gas pumps on Railroad Street and while he was getting gas he smelled the odor of burning marijuana," Dunn said. "He began to walk around and saw Antwain and Derrick Cummings smoking marijuana on the front porch of 1133 Railroad St., and that is the house directly across from the gas pumps."
Both suspects were arrested, but Cummings was able to bond out before authorities connected him to the Subway robbery, Dunn said. A third suspect may also have been involved in the Subway incident, Dunn said.
On June 11, the following Monday night, Cummings and another man, whose name has not been released, allegedly robbed Elliott's Grocery at the corner of Sigman and Rockbridge roads.
Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Lt. Michael Camp said Cummings and the other man entered the grocery at about 9 p.m. armed with handguns and robbed the two female clerks of the store's cash.
"The county has warrants issued against both of the guys in the Elliott's robbery but we are not releasing the third person's name at this time," Camp said.
No one was injured in either of the two robberies.
