23 year old Walter Moore and 18 year old Jennifer Walthour are accused of holding up three Valdosta convenience stores last September. Police say Walthour would drive the get-away car after Moore stole the cash.
Police arrested Moore and Walthour after a high speed chase on September 23rd.
"We chased them to a house on Mary Street where we found her in the house, and we found him. He had run from the scene, and we caught him a little distance away in one of the housing projects," says Commander Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police Department.
Moore used a rifle in each of the three armed robberies. Police say he also committed two residential burglaries in Valdosta last September.
