CONYERS -- A man who allegedly participated in the armed robbery of three people at a Leafway Trail residence has been arrested by the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office.
James Michael Pittman, 18, of 775 Cole Lane, Conyers, has been charged with armed robbery, giving false information to authorities and concealing facts. He was arrested at a residence in Milstead on Jan. 6.
According to Investigator Michael Camp, Pittman and two other men drove to the Leafway Trail residence between 2:30 and 3 a.m. on Jan. 2. The suspects were armed with shotguns, according to Camp, and held up the male and female residents of the house and a male guest. The victims were robbed of cash, keys and cell phones.
Camp said the victims knew Pittman and identified him to the Sheriff's Office. They did not know the other two suspects, one of whom was wearing a mask, Camp said.
When arrested by deputies, Camp said Pittman allegedly lied about his involvement in the armed robbery.
He said the Sheriff's Office expects to be able to identify the other two suspects soon.
