WARNER ROBINS -- Two men and two women are in jail facing charges in a home invasion armed robbery at about 2 a.m. Thursday.

Officers said they found 29-year-old LaQuentin Shakespear trying to walk away from a home in the 100 block of Wall Street, where the victim said he was confronted by a gunman inside the residence, according to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department.

Other officers tried to stop a vehicle leaving the area, but the driver kept going.

A man jumped out and ran toward Wellborn Road as officers were able to stop the vehicle and arrest the driver, 20-year-old Colleen Ussery and her 24-year-old passenger Jessica Lauren Cox.

Houston County deputies and the Warner Robins Police Canine Unit captured the man who ran from the car, 22-year-old Victor Casey Dennard, of Warner Robins. Dennard was charged with armed robbery, marijuana possession, obstruction of an officer and firearm possession by a convicted felon and during commission of a crime.

Tabitha Clark, spokeswoman for the police department, said Dennard was the man in the house.

“He shows up, he asks for money, the victim said he didn’t have any, and then he flees the scene,” Clark said.

Shakespear, of Warner Robins, is charged with being party to the crime of armed robbery, DUI and driving with a suspended license. Clark said investigators think he drove to the house, even though he was found walking away.

Ussery, of Macon, is charged with being party to the crime of armed robbery, fleeing or attempting to elude, DUI, driving with a suspended license and a headlight violation.

Cox, of Macon, was charged with being party to the crime of armed robbery.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call investigators at 478-302-5380 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 478-742-2330.
