Police track down man wanted for 24 Family Dollar thefts

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A 23-year-old man suspected of robbing 24 Family Dollar stores in metro Atlanta, as well as a PNC branch in Tucker, is due in court Monday. Last Friday, anonymous tips led police to find and arrest Artavius Marcellus Brown at a home on Thomasville Drive in southeast Atlanta.

Authorities say Brown has mostly targeted Family Dollar stores, but he has also hit other businesses. He has struck in DeKalb, Gwinnett and Henry counties, as well as the cities of Lilburn, Lithonia and Atlanta. Thirteen of the robberies happened in DeKalb County.

Police say Brown may also have hit a Dollar General store in Henry County.

The FBI is involved in the investigation.
