APD collars two teens for robberies

July 30, 2007


Albany --  Another Albany teen is arrested in connection with armed robberies of a restaurant, a convenience store, and a video store.   Albany Police were looking for 18-year-old Tee-Jay Price.

They eventually contacted him in Atlanta, and over the weekend, he returned to Albany and surrendered to police.

Price and 16-year-old Justin Moore are charged with two armed robberies at Three Squares Diner on East Oakridge and robberies at Video Warehouse on North Slappey and Clark Service store.

"We talked for a long period of time and he discussed some of the things he had done and he was remorseful for them. We have several other individuals of interest as well in interest to some of the home invasions that we have been having on that same side of town," Lt. Kendra Wilson of the Albany Police Robbery & Homicide unit.

Price told police the weapon they used was just a dart gun.

During increased weekend patrols on the East Side, Albany Police also arrested Calile Branch who traveled with Moore and Price. Branch is charged with burglary for a home break-in on the East Side.
