Suspect's disguise didn't work

June 7, 2007

Boston  --  Investigators said bond is unlikely for a Thomas county man awaiting arraignment.

Police arrested 19-year-old Dionte Shaw for an armed robbery at a Boston convenience store Tuesday. He's charged with two counts of armed robbery and several counts of aggravated assault.

The robber was wearing a bandana, but that didn't stop people from recognizing him.

"The robber was identified by witnesses outside the store and also inside the store, we were able to get him into custody yesterday morning. At that time he'd made admissions to other friends of his that he also did the firehouse subs robbery," said Inv. Tim Watkins of the Thomas Co. Sheriff's Office.

Police had few leads on the man who held employees at gunpoint at Firehouse subs in Thomasville two weeks ago. In addition to these two robberies, Shaw has admitted to two other recent Boston burglaries.
