Three arrested in armed robbery

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Investigators say Ray Simmons, Michael Simmons, and Chonda Lane tried to rob a Convenience Store on Faceville Road on October 15th.

One of them fired shots inside the store and one grabbed a clerk. Investigators say they didn't get any money from the store, but they drove off with that clerk, took his money, and dropped him off on the side of the road.

Investigator Robert Humphrey said, "He was taken hostage, taken to an area about 2 or 3 miles from there which was a plantation down there and he was robbed, the money was taken and he was dropped off there by the suspects."

The kidnapping victim flagged down a deputy. Chonda Lane is in jail in Decatur County and the two male suspects were arrested in Florida and remain in custody there.
