DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

The suspect of a Dawson armed robbery is in the custody of the Terrell County Sheriff's Office.

According to officials, the ABC Package Store on Highway 520 was robbed at around 9 p.m. Wednesday night.

Officials said the suspect, Cornelius Deshon Peters, 25, has been in trouble with the law before, and was taken into custody on probation charges after he went into the store brandishing a handgun.

The Sheriff says armed robbery charges are pending.

The owner of the store was working at the time, but no injuries were reported.

A regular customer who visited the store Thursday said he was just glad no one was hurt.

"Like I said, they have been having problems pretty regular, but ain't no thing were people have been hurt yet. It is always strange when you hear something like that, especially in your neighborhood. But, people can get a job and go to work," said Charles Bowens.
