Clarksville bank robbery suspects in custody
SoVaNow.com / September 06, 2013Three men wanted for questioning in connection with the June 27 robbery at the Bank of America branch on Virginia Avenue in Clarksville and the Family Foods store on Highway 49 in Nelson are in custody in North Carolina — two in Granville County and one in Wake County.
They are 21-year old Johnnie Manson, Jr., and his brother 18-year old Shaquan Manson, and 33-year old Michael Anthony Harris Jr.
The men were first arrested in Person County, N.C. after the sheriff's office there received a tip of "suspicious persons in the area," explained Person County Sheriff Dewey Jones. At the time of their arrest, the men had face masks and other criminal tools, according to Jones, but only Shaquan Manson faces charges in Person County for carrying a concealed weapon.
A database check by Person County deputies revealed that three men matching their descriptions were also wanted for questioning in connection with a string of armed robberies in the Granville County, N.C. area.
Granville County Sheriff's Detective Doug McFee said the Manson brothers were subsequently charged in Granville County with robbery and kidnapping for their role in robberies at Bowen's Mini Mart, Moore's Grocery, and Berea Mini Mart. These charges were filed on August 10.
Harris was arrested four days later in North Carolina and is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, second degree kidnapping, larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and discharge of a weapon into occupied property, also in connection with the Granville County area robberies. Harris was given a secured bond of $500,000.
"At this time the three are only suspects" in the Mecklenburg County robberies, said Lt. Chris Whittemore with the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.
The cases in both Granville County and Mecklenburg County remain under investigation.
CommentsThank You Sheriff's!!!!!!!!!!!!
