OCILLA, GA (WALB) -

Dondrey Rosier, 20, is in custody in Irwin County, in connection with a recent armed robbery of the Harvey's Supermarket in Ocilla. Another suspect, Chris Hawkins, 19, has been indicted, but is still at large.

Rosier was arrested for a traffic violation in Turner County on December 11, and deputies saw an outstanding warrant for him in Irwin County.

Ocilla PD says that officers are looking for a third suspect, and there is a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.  

Police executed a search warrant at Rosier's Oak Street home on December 5, and found two pistols that are believed to have been used in the armed robbery of the Harvey's. They also found over $6,000 in cash, likely taken in the crime.

Both men face charges of armed robbery, and two counts of aggravated assault.

Two masked robbers forced a manager back inside the Ocilla Harvey's, as a third robber pushed a store employee to the ground and duct taped his hands behind his back.

With an assault rifle to his head, the manager was forced to empty the safe. As other robbers grabbed cigarettes, the manager was forced to the floor in the store office.

The robbers, one of whom police suspect is a woman, tried to cover their tracks by dousing the security cameras with bleach.

Irwin County and Coffee County Sheriff's Offices are helping in the search, and the Thomas County Sheriff's Office is helping process fingerprints.

Ocilla PD are now offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to arrest and prosecution of the three individuals that are responsible for the crime.

Call police at 229.468.7494 if you have any information.
