Blountstown Hwy. Robbery Suspect Admits to Several Gadsden Heists

On Tuesday, deputies from the Leon County Sheriff’s Office arrested a guy in connection with an armed robbery that took place on the west side of Tallahassee.

On Monday, officers from the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about an armed robbery that had taken place at a business located in the 7900 block of Blountstown Highway.

According to a press statement issued by the LCSO, deputies were successful in identifying the culprit, who witnesses reported “brandished a semi-automatic handgun” during the incident.

The following day, the Gadsden County LCSO informed the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) about another robbery that had taken place earlier that day at a company in Gadsden County. The witness descriptions, in that case, matched the car description and the male suspect description of the incident that occurred on Blountstown Highway.

In collaboration with the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) was able to locate the suspect at a home on Geddie Road in Leon County.

According to the LCSO, he was discovered with “numerous items of evidentiary value in his possession,” including a.380 semi-automatic handgun, cash, and clothing similar to what he wore during the armed robberies.

According to the LCSO, the suspect confessed to the armed robbery that occurred on Blountstown Highway as well as several other armed robberies that occurred in Gadsden County.

He is accused of one count of armed robbery with a firearm as well as one count of possessing a firearm despite having a previous conviction for a felony. In addition to that, he is being prosecuted in Gadsden County.

If you have any information regarding this case or other connected incidents, please call the detectives of the LCSO’s Violent Crimes Unit at (850) 606-3300. Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Big Bend Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-8477.
