ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Police arrested Ray Dykes, III this afternoon on Georgia Power Road.

They believe he was the getaway driver for John Dabney's robbery of the Stop and Shop in East Albany on June 3.

"During the investigation it was determined that the possibility of drug use on that particular night.  And generally when people are on drugs they do commit these types of crimes.  It's because of the drugs that most of these types of crimes happen," said DCP Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

Investigators say Dykes and Dabney were roommates in a house on Telfair Avenue, near where the car was discovered last week.  Investigators say they did not ask Dabney about the reported home invasion of an Albany woman Thursday.  She reported that it was Dabney that broke into her home.

Dabney was on the run, and was picked up this weekend near Acree. Both men are in jail.
