Dawson-- Investigators have two suspects in custody, and both are tied to earlier robberies.

Just before seven Tuesday morning, the USA Service Station in Sasser was held up. The suspect got away with two hundred dollars, but he didn't get far.

Nineteen-year-old Rodney King was picked up at his home shortly after investigators say he robbed the gas station off Highway 520. Deputies recognized the getaway car from an earlier traffic violation and traced it to King's house.

King might be tied to another robbery two weeks ago. "Of course we don't know if the one we got this morning is connected with the one in Bronwood, we are going to question him about that," said Terrell Sheriff John Bowens. "We are pretty well sure we have got the one that did the robbery in the city."

Also in custody is 19-year-old Horace Grier, Junior. He is being questioned about several other robberies in Dawson over the past few months. Grier was picked up Monday on an entering auto charge.
