Four men from Peachtree City, Fayetteville and Sharpsburg were charged Nov. 26 in likely connection with two armed robberies that occurred in Peachtree City on Nov. 24 and 25.

Robert C. Tutton, 20, of Belle Drive, Fayetteville, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.

Levi F. Robinson, 18, of Indian Bluff Drive, Sharpsburg, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.

David J. Flowers, 17, of Peachtree Parkway, Peachtree City, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.

Desmond J. Whitby, 17, of Brenda Lane, Fayetteville, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery, according to Peachtree City Police Department spokesperson Odilia Bergh.

Bergh said on Nov. 24 at approximately 7:21 p.m., Peachtree City officers were called to the scene of a reported armed robbery that occurred at a car wash near the intersection of Steven’s Entry and Prime Point.

“The victim was reportedly vacuuming his vehicle when he was approached by at least two male suspects wearing hoodies,” said Bergh. “One of the males brandished a firearm and the victim was thrown to the ground before having his wallet and cell phone removed from his pockets. The males fled the scene on foot.”

Then on Nov. 25 at approximately 9:50 p.m., officers were called to the scene of a reported armed robbery in the parking lot of ReNew Apartments at 1000 Steven’s Entry, said Bergh.

Bergh said two male victims were approached by a vehicle containing multiple male suspects. The suspects proceeded to physically assault one of the victims and a firearm was brandished while property was demanded from both victims. The suspects fled the scene.

“Investigation determined that the suspects went to a nearby residence on North Peachtree Parkway in the area of Stevens Entry where the three suspects were taken into custody without incident. A search warrant was executed at the residence,” Bergh said.” A fourth suspect was taken into custody several hours later on Nov. 26. The robbery was determined to be related to a drug transaction.”

Bergh said similarities between the two robberies indicate that they are likely related, although no drug connection was found in the first incident.

Further investigation is ongoing.
