Christo­pher West­more­land was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with sev­eral rob­beries in New­ton, Rock­dale and DeKalb coun­ties.

The De­catur res­i­dent was iden­ti­fied by a cit­i­zen who saw a ‘Be On The Look Out’ is­sued Fri­day. West­more­land was ar­rested and taken to the Rock­dale County jail Satur­day.

Cov­ing­ton po­lice were look­ing for West­more­land in con­nec­tion with a rob­bery of Wal­greens at 3188 Hwy. 278 Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the white male en­tered the drug store and pre­sented a note stat­ing he had a gun and told the clerk to give him money from the draw.

The man then left in a blue two-door Acura sedan with a spare tire on the front driver’s side.

He is be­lieved to be the same per­son re­spon­si­ble for three other rob­beries in DeKalb and Cony­ers.
