VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - After a dramatic stand-off in Valdosta this week, police charged two cousins with robbing a Chevron gas station.

And investigators think they are responsible for four other crimes.

23-year-old Walter Moore and 18-year-old Jennifer Wahltour are both charged with the armed robbery of the S and M Food Mart in Valdosta.

Moore faces separate charges for his suspected involvement with the armed robbery of the DJ Food Mart and for the burglary of homes on Iola Drive and Langdale Drive.

All those crimes happened this month. 

"We are overjoyed. Anytime we work any type of serious crimes we work with the attitude that this person or persons have been involved with more than one crimes. So with that in mind it leads to other evidence that helps us solve other crimes," says Capt. Bernard Robinson with the Valdosta Police.

But they say they are still not done.

They believe the two may be involved with other crimes and say more charges could be filed.
