Citizen helps police nab robbery suspects

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Two men are in jail accused in an overnight armed robbery at the Walmart in Thomasville.

One of the robbers pulled a gun on a clerk in a checkout line around 3am on Thursday and threatened to kill her.

Another Walmart employee gave police a good description of the getaway car. Police spotted it in Valdosta a couple of hours later and arrested Darius Crumby and Nathaniel Cox.

"We are so glad that they had the discipline and the restraint to get good vital information, to pass on so we could get the look out, get the interviews and put the information together," said Thomasville police chief Ellis Jackson.

Crumby and Cox are from Jacksonville, Florida. They're being held in the Thomas County Jail with charges pending.
