The Covington News - - THE SECOND FRONT - MICHELLE KIM news@cov­

Rob­bers struck a pizza store New Year’s morn­ing us­ing a fake gun and a sock and then ran straight into a Rock­dale County Sher­iff’s Of­fice traf­fic stop where they were caught.

The sus­pects struck the Domino’s pizza store at Honey Creek, on Ga. High­way 20, around 2 a.m., Jan. 1.

Ac­cord­ing to a store em­ployee, a black male came into the store two times with­out or­der­ing any­thing.

The third time he came in, he re­port­edly pointed a sock at the em­ployee with an ob­ject in­side it shaped like a gun.

The sus­pect left with the store’s money, got into a car wait­ing out­side and fled.

The store man­ager got into a car and fol­lowed the sus­pects as they drove up Ga. High­way 20.

Both cars ap­proached a traf­fic check­point set up by the Rock­dale County Sher­iff’s Of­fice on Ga. 20. The man­ager yelled out to deputies that the peo­ple in the car ahead had just robbed her.

The sus­pects were taken into cus­tody and the store’s money was re­cov­ered. In­side the car, deputies also found a sock and a cell phone, which had been used as the fake gun.

Jac­quille Chisolm, 24, of Cov­ing­ton, and Keyanah Smith, 19, of Cony­ers, who was driv­ing the car, were both charged with armed rob­bery. Both sus­pects are be­ing held at the Rock­dale County jail.
