LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A Florida man was arrested Wednesday, charged with three recent robberies in Lowndes County.

30-year-old Adam Lee Simmons was arrested at his home in Greenville, Florida.  Authorities say Simmons robbed two restaurants in Valdosta--the Subway inside the Norman Drive Walmart on July 5th, and Pizza Quick back on June 25th.

He's also charged with robbing the Gap Outlet store in Lake Park.  No one was injured in the robberies, but Simmons stole a large amount of cash.

"On at least two of the robberies, he's threatened the people, saying that he did have a weapon," says Commander Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police Department.  "A weapon was not displayed in any of them, but he did make the threat of a weapon."

Authorities say Simmons' appearance and vehicle matched images captured by surveillance cameras.  Lowndes County Sheriffs investigators say Simmons may be responsible for more crimes in the area.
