Peachtree City police have made an arrest in connection with two recent armed robberies over the past four months.

According to a statement, law enforcement officers from both Peachtree City and Fayetteville executed a search warrant at a Fayetteville residence in the early morning hours of Oct. 24. The investigation involves armed robberies at the Circle K gas station on Crosstown Drive in July as well as this month. A number of items of evidence were seized including the rifle, clothing and backpack seen in surveillance video from the store.

Kaden Lowry, 21, of Fayetteville was arrested and taken to Fayette County Jail. He is facing two counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

The arrest was the culmination of an extensive investigation by the Peachtree City Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division and assistance from several local establishments and residents that provided surveillance video upon request, according to a department spokesman. Police reported that more than a dozen local establishments and residents provided surveillance footage that helped track down the suspect.


  1. Excellent reporting, Mr. Rourk. I was just at that gas station the other day. A good follow-up article might be on how we can assist our public safety departments to achieve results like this one (rather than the messy ones we all too often hear about).
    You got my curiosity going, so I just visited the PTC website and found this:

    Operation Connect

    Operation Connect is an opportunity for home and business owners to assist the Peachtree City Police Department in keeping their community safe. It is a community partnership that will help officers investigate incidents within the community more effectively and efficiently. The goal of this program is to help police identify potential sources of video if an incident occurs in your area. Participants are able to provide pertinent information regarding video surveillance equipment they have at their disposal, which may assist in the timely identification of criminal suspects. Participation in the program is voluntary and does not grant any individual direct access to your surveillance systems. It simply provides police with your contact information and general area of surveillance so that we may reach out to you for assistance if an incident occurs in your area. This allows you to have a direct impact on reducing crime in your community, and your participation in protecting the community is greatly appreciated.
