Ronnie Hamilton, was arrested Monday by Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office, and had first appearance Tuesday morning, in connection  with conspiracy to commit a crime and probation violation, both felonies. He was not given a bond at the hearing.

Dougherty County Police say he took part In attempted robbery of a man on November 16th.

In November of 2015, 27-year-old Jamel Miller and 17-year-old Makayla Ingram were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery.  Investigators say Miller was the getaway driver, while Ingram set up Calvin Beckhom to be robbed.

21-year-old Fredriquez Smith was also wanted for the crime, and is still at large.

Investigators say Ingram lured Beckhom to a Marie Road alley, just before midnight November 16th.

"She was going to meet him for some money, and when she told these other people about what was going to happen, they all conspired and agreed they were going to try to rob him," said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick of Dougherty County Police.

Investigators say Beckhom escaped the gunmen, but they followed him to his East Park Court home. He called police who captured Miller, while the other suspects escaped.
