ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Another Albany teenager has been arrested in the ambush and shooting of a Papa Johns pizza deliveryman last month.

Seventeen year old Curtis Dewayne Lockett was arrested Thursday night. He's charged in the shooting of 49-year old Tim Monette on Gordon Avenue. Monette was shot in the back of the head while making a delivery. He survived. Now, two teenagers are charged in the shooting.

Albany Police won't say exactly what role Curtis Lockett played in the crime, but he has provided information to police relating to Monette's stolen car and some information on other unrelated crimes.

The trail in the case of a Papa John's delivery man shot in the head during a delivery on West Gordon got hot again with a new arrest and it led police on another crime trail across the city.

"Basically this arrest was made and information regarding Mr. Lockett on the aggressive work of the investigators just getting out there and talking with people and gathering information," said Phyllis Banks Whitley, Albany Police Media Manager.

Seventeen year old Curtis Lockett is charged with aggravated assault, party to a crime, armed robbery, party to a crime and theft by receiving stolen property in the attack on delivery man Tim Monette.

"Right now he's charged with party to a crime so, he had information regarding it," said Whitley.

Lockett was arrested Thursday night in the 1100 block of West Gordon, near where the shooting occurred, but led investigators to the 1500 block of West Whitney two stolen guns and a large amount of shotgun ammunition.

"Right now we believe that ammunition was recovered was stolen from a burglary that occurred in the county," said Whitley.

From a burglary at Wynfield Plantation in which 20 shotguns and ammunition were stolen. Police have not determined whether the guns belong to the plantation. With teens involved in several of these cases police are still sorting out the details and haven't said whether it's gang related.

"The gang unit just assisted, they knew we were looking for this individual so they were just able to pick him up," said Whitley.

Albany Police say Curtis Lockett is being questioned in three other aggravated assaults. Those include incidents in the 300 block of Gillespie and on Willie Pitts Road where shots with a shot gun were fired into several homes.

Sixteen-year old Roy Whitfield, Junior was previously charged in the shooting. Albany Police say more arrests are expected.
