The Greenville Police Department made an arrest in reference to a burglary that occurred on May 2.
According to GPD, a black male, who had his face covered, entered the Marathon Gas Station located at Highway 10 and I-65 in Greenville.
The suspect is shown on video pointing a gun at the clerk and demanding money and then fled on foot behind the store, police said.
According to Captain Justin Lovvorn, investigators have been working with other surrounding agencies that have had similar robberies. Using evidence collected at the Marathon as well as other jurisdictions, investigators were then able to develop a suspect. Ladarrius Fantroy of Repton was the suspect being sought for robbery.
Fantroy lives in Conecuh County where several of the robberies have occurred. Conecuh County Sheriff’s Department picked Fantroy up on July 5.
Once the suspect was confronted with evidence he confessed to the robbery at the Marathon in Greenville as well as the robberies in Conecuh County. The suspect is currently being held in the Conecuh County Jail.
Captain Lovvorn stated, “The Greenville Police Department would like to thank the citizens of Greenville and the surrounding areas that assist us in keeping our community safe.
“It is the cooperation between law enforcement and the community that truly make us effective. If you have information about a crime and wish to report it to law enforcement, please call and ask for an investigator at 334-382-7461.”
