A 17 year old male was taken into custody this morning along with his 20 year old brother. A third occupant of the SUV was identified and released without charges.

Police spotted the SUV believed to have been used in yesterday’s armed robbery at Domino’s from surveillance video they obtained.   The SUV was parked illegally in the 300 block of South Peachtree at approximately 10:38am by a patrol officer.  The suspect’s older brother, Ramiro Solis, was in the driver’s seat and exited the vehicle and refused to cooperate with the officer and surrender his driver’s license.   The driver was taken into custody and will be charged with conspiracy relating to the robberies.  The robbery suspect was in the passenger seat and was not cooperative regarding his identity or anyone else in the vehicle.  A wrecker towed and secured the vehicle and Police secured the suspect’s home while search warrants were obtained.
