Man arrested in 2 Worth Co. store robberies


SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) – Worth County investigators have arrested man they suspect is behind two recent convenience store robberies, one them while using a homemade spear.

Deputies arrested 41-year-old Henry James Paoletti shortly after investigators say he robbed Shiba Foods Saturday in Poulan.

Surveillance video of the hold up showed a masked robber demanding  money while threatening a clerk with spear.

Witnesses reported the suspect leaving in a maroon Ford Ranger. That tip led to his arrest.

Investigators had suspected Polettie of robbing the Sumner Food Store a few weeks ago with a gun. He's being held in the Worth County Jail charged with 2 counts of armed robbery.
