One person is in custody more than a week after an early morning crime spree left a Macon store clerk wounded on July 4.
Chelsey Danielle Evans, 30, of Andrews Drive in Macon, was arrested and charged with three counts of armed robbery and two counts of aggravated assault, according to Bibb County jail records.
Members of the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force and Bibb County sheriff’s office found Evans at a home on Elm Street and took her into custody without incident at about 8 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Evans is accused of driving a family member’s blue 2005 Honda Civic with both front hubcaps missing to rob three businesses with 27-year-old Javar Rashard Haywood, who is still on the run.
According to Bibb County sheriff’s investigators, Evans and Haywood hit the Citgo on Rocky Creek Road at about 2:50 a.m. on July 4 where Haywood is accused of firing a shot at 24-year-old clerk Bhavesh Patel, who was grazed by the bullet.
They didn’t get any cash from that store, but about an hour later Haywood allegedly jumped the counter at the Waffle House at 3620 Riverside Drive where he took an undisclosed amount of cash from the restaurant near the Arkwright Road interchange of Interstate 75.
By 6:30 a.m., surveillance cameras at the Exxon Quick Serve at 2311 Pio Nono Avenue captured two people entering the store.
They spent about an hour in the game room where authorities said Haywood was counting money presumably taken from the Waffle House. Evans then went to the clerk and said one of the game machines was not working.
As the store employee left the enclosed counter, Haywood allegedly pulled a gun and robbed the store. He ran away, but Evans reportedly stayed behind a few minutes before leaving in the Honda.
Both Haywood and Evans have criminal histories in Bibb County.
Haywood pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in 2014 in an incident where he was also charged with marijuana possession and accused of bringing pot and cocaine into the Bibb County jail.
Evans pleaded guilty to cocaine possession and obstruction of an officer in November 2014 after she was accused of running from an officer and reckless driving two years earlier.
Haywood is described as a black man, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds. He had a goatee at the time of the robberies.
