Macon man accused of robbing his grandmother

A 24-year-old Macon man was arrested Monday after allegedly leaving a car running at an Emery Highway intersection and robbing his grandmother inside her east Macon home, police said.

Broderick Ogletree, of 576 Fort Hill St., remained in custody late Tuesday at the Bibb County jail on a $650 bond, according to jail records.

About 4 p.m. Monday, in the middle of the intersection of Fort Hill Street and Emery Highway, Ogletree jumped out of a cream colored Cadillac and ran into his grandmother’s home, where he also has lived, according to a Macon police news release.

An area detective observed the incident and proceeded to investigate.

Ogletree reportedly spotted the officer and ran from the area. Moments later, the elderly woman came out of her home screaming that her grandson had just stolen her money.

Ogletree led multiple Macon police officers on a brief foot chase before he was captured near Old Clinton Road and Gray Highway, according to the release.

The woman was not injured, police said.
