Valdosta Police say they arrested a man who is charged with robbing a beauty shop, soon after the crime occurred, Friday.
They say that 25 year old RaShun Daniels, is the armed man who went into Beauty and Things on Madison Highway about 10:30 Friday morning, and held it up.
Witnesses said the man entered the store with a firearm and pointed it at store employees, and demanded money. They said he left the store in a white sedan.
Within approximately thirty minutes, a vehicle matching the description of that car was spotted at a residence on the 1300 block of Baymeadows Drive by Valdosta Police.
Police found a man matching the description of the armed robbery suspect, and they arrested RaShun Daniels, and took him to the Lowndes County Jail. Daniels has been charged with Armed Robbery, and further charges may be forthcoming.
"The witness testimony in this case was crucial in providing an accurate description of the offender’s vehicle," said VPD Lieutenant Adam Bembry. "This is another example of citizen participation playing a critical role in making arrests. The investigating officers in this case are also commended for a quick resolution and arrest of the offender before he was able to harm anyone else."
