VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A man and woman charged with a string of Lowndes County armed robberies have been indicted.

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.
