Police seek suspect in area robberies

LAWRENCEVILLE - Authorities are seeking the public's help in finding the third suspect in at least three area business robberies.

Gwinnett County Robbery Unit investigators on Friday arrested 23-year-old Damien Johnson of Lawrenceville and Wyteria Middlebrooks, 22, of Clarkston in connection with two robberies of a Lawrenceville Wachovia and another at a Duluth Metro PCS.

Arrest warrants have also been sworn on 25-year-old Kevin Michael Jackson, who police consider to be armed and dangerous.

The men are accused of robbing the Wachovia at 3065 Lawrenceville Highway at gunpoint on Jan. 13 and and again on Jan. 28, and the Metro PCS at 440 Pleasant Hill Road.

Middlebrook's involvement is unclear, but she was released from the Gwinnett County Jail on Saturday after posting a $1,300 bond on a misdemeanor charge of theft by receiving. Johnson is being held without bond.

Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. David Schiralli said investigators and FBI agents found evidence from the robberies after conducting a search warrant at one of the suspects' home.

Authorities urge anyone with information on Jackson's whereabouts to call 911.
