Arrest made in CVS armed robbery

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - Lee County deputies have arrested 26-year-old Eric Kyle Newell in connection with an armed robbery at the CVS on U.S. Highway 19 South in Lee County.

Authorities said they made the arrest Saturday morning at Newell's grandmother's house on White Pond Road without incident.

Deputies said he was wearing the same clothes he had on during the armed robbery last night.

It's unclear at this time if they recovered the money taken from the CVS.

Authorities are working to get a warrant on Newell for armed robbery.

He had active warrants out for his arrest for failure to appear for shoplifting.
