The Valdosta Police Department says that they have two men in custody and they are being charged with robbing 28 year old Jaques Evans. He told police that the men stole $130 in cash and a laptop computer while they held him at gunpoint.

The incident happened late Friday night, and Breon Stubbins and Kadeem Harris, both 23, were stopped by a Lowndes Co. deputy on I-75 shortly thereafter.

Jaques Evans told police the two men approached him at the intersection of Old Statenville Road and Arlington Avenue, both pulled handguns on him, and ordered him to get on the ground. He said they took his property and ran away.

On July 26, 2013 at approximately 2351 hours, the Valdosta Police Department responded to the 900 block of Old Statenville Road in reference to the report of an armed robbery. Officers arrived and spoke to Jaques Evans who indicated that two African American males approached him at the intersection of Old Statenville Road and Arlington Avenue, both pulled handguns on him, and ordered him to get on the ground.

Evans stated that they stole his laptop computer and approximately $130 in cash, and then fled on foot. Evans gave a description of the offenders and Officers checked the area, but were unable to locate them. Evans was not injured during the incident. A detective with the Valdosta Police Department Persons Crime Unit responded to investigate.
