There have been a couple of armed robberies that have taken place in the Atlanta suburb of Buckhead recently. On Tuesday, police released photos from a surveillance camera that showed a couple that used a baby to rob people. Tips from the general public pointed out Lawson as the man who fits the description of the suspect police were looking for.
As far as the woman’s identity, police have not released her name, or revealed if any charges will be filed against her.
Two victims were robbed at gunpoint while leaving the Buckhead Publix supermarket earlier this month. The robber’s modus operandi were similar in both instances: the assailant pointed a gun at his victims, demanded cash, credit cards and their ATM pin numbers. In one instance, the robber threatened his victim’s life.
