Wrong person arrested in robbery at Walmart

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

A teenager arrested for robbing a woman at the Lee County Walmart was released this afternoon and is not charged in the crime.

Investigators say the 78-year-old victim mistakenly identified 17-year-old Antonio Gordon as the suspect in the lineup.

Officials later realized the mistake after reviewing surveillance footage of the incident.

Another witness also identified Gordon as the suspect, but the Sheriff's Office said he will not be charged.

Investigators are now asking for help to identify the actual robbery suspect.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
