The man wanted in a Tuesday afternoon armed robbery at a north Bibb County grocery store has been apprehended.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Daniel Bryan Koon, 40, at the Villager Lodge on Harrison Road just before noon Wednesday, according to a Bibb County Sheriffs Office news release.
Koon is charged with robbery in connection with the Tuesday afternoon robbery of Publix on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard, according to the release.
Deputies recovered the black 2002 Ford Escape that Koon allegedly used in the Publix robbery after it was spotted parked at Pet Supermarket, 265 Tom Hill Sr. Blvd.
Witnesses have said a man approached the clerk at the customer service desk, said he had a gun and demanded money from the register. He didnt display a weapon.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the man left in the Escape, according to the sheriffs office.
Authorities said Tuesday that they suspected the same man of robbing Family Dollar, 160 Emery Highway, on July 31. During both robberies, he wore the same blue windbreaker type jacket and camouflage baseball cap with a black G on the front, according to a sheriffs office news release.
Koon is being held at the county jail without bond, according to the sheriffs office.
