LAWRENCEVILLE -- A Lilburn man was arrested last week for allegedly robbing a local cellphone store, marking his 19th arrest in Gwinnett County since 2003.
Frankie Lee Wright, 26, was arrested last Friday and charged with armed robbery and first-degree burglary, both felonies. Gwinnett County jail records show he is being held without bond.
According to warrants issued by Gwinnett police, Wright is accused of robbing SI Communications -- a cellphone dealer at 3375 Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville -- on the afternoon of Oct. 25.
"The defendant came in the store and held the employees at gunpoint while he stole money and cellphones," the warrant said.
A full incident report was not immediately available Wednesday.
County jail records show last week's arrest was Wright's fifth in Gwinnett since July 2011, and his 19th since 2003. Wright was most recently arrested in April, on charges of criminal trespass, loitering and prowling and disorderly conduct.
Other charges from various arrests include theft by deception, theft by receiving, theft by taking, driving without a license, marijuana possession, probation violation and giving false information.
