PERRY -- A Warner Robins man has been indicted on charges of armed robbery, kidnapping and false imprisonment in the Sept. 28 robbery of a Marathon convenience store and gas station.

Aaron Demond Trice, 25, was also indicted by a Houston County grand jury on one count of misdemeanor battery.

Trice is charged with intimidating two clerks at the North Houston road store with a BB gun that was made to look like a sawed off rifle, according to an arrest warrant.

Trice allegedly held the clerks against their will, and he’s accused of grabbing one of the clerks by her arm and shoving her into the enclosed cash register area.

Cedric DeWayne Thomas, 43, of Unadilla, was indicted on one count of attempted robbery in connection with an Oct. 22 incident in the parking lot of Zaxby’s at 1425 Sam Nunn Blvd. in Perry.

Thomas is accused of coming up to a 19-year-old who was in her vehicle in the parking lot, putting his finger under his shirt as if he had a weapon and demanding money, Perry police said.

The teenager, who was on her cell phone with her stepfather, told the man she didn’t have any money, would have to get some and drove off, police said.

Also indicted were Suzanne Halcomb, 18, and Roy Halcomb, 61, both of Warner Robins, on charges of neglect of an elderly person and exploitation of an elderly person.

They are charged with failing to care for an elderly woman by not cleaning her and allowing her to lie in her own urine and feces, which caused a “chemical burning to her skin,” the indictment stated.

They are also accused of removing funds from the woman’s account on the pretense of paying her bills, but instead using the money for other purposes, the indictment stated.

The indictment against Trice was returned Jan. 14, while the other indictments were returned Jan. 28.
