Police catch armed robbery gang

September 7, 2006

Valdosta - A suspected gang of armed robbers has been caught in Valdosta.

19 year olds Robert Campbell, Shamon Denson, Antonio Denson, and 22 year-old Jermaine Demps of Quitman were arrested last night.  Police believe they robbed six people including a delivery man.

A lookout had been posted on the Chrysler New Yorker they were driving and a Valdosta State University police officer spotted the car last night.  The suspects were arrested in neighboring Brooks County. 
"That was the break. Then a lot of good follow up with Brooks County Sheriff's Office and Quitman Police Department. It was a good team effort and it sends a message that we'll work together, we always have worked together," said Captain Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police Department.

All four suspects have been charged with Armed Robbery and Aggravated Assault.  Police say more charges may be forthcoming.
