A Millen man was charged in connection to a July armed robbery at Aspen Heights Apartments about a month after the incident occurred, police said.
Fazion Rashard Branch, 19, Ginhouse Road, Millen, is behind bars on charges of armed robbery stemming from a July 26 incident, said Statesboro Police Deputy Chief Rob Bryan.
Around 7 p.m. July 26, Statesboro police responded to Aspen Heights, along with members of the Statesboro Bulloch Crime Suppression Team, to investigate an armed robbery report, he said.
“Responding officers began an investigation and were unable to locate any offenders in the area. No injuries were reported at the time.”
The investigation was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Bureau and assigned to Detective Travis Kreun. “Through the investigation, Detective Kreun identified Fazion Branch as an offender in the armed robbery and secured warrants for his arrest,” Bryan said.
Monday, Branch was arrested by the Jenkins County Sheriff’s Office on the active warrant and is being held at the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office to await further court action, he said.
