A Flintstone man has been arrested and charged with using a knife to rob three stores in Walker and Catoosa counties
Michael Creel, 27, has been charged with three counts of armed robbery and of robbery by intimidation, said Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson in a news release.
Creel is being held in Walker County jail without a bond, Wilson said. If convicted of the charges, he could face up to 90 years in jail.
The first robbery was on Nov. 6 at 3:20 a.m., when the Flintstone Kangaroo convenience store was robbed by a knife-wielding man, Wilson said. The man fled the store with about $150.
On Nov. 12, a man using a knife stole $150 from the Kangaroo convenience store in Rossville, Wilson said.
At Plaza Uniforms in Fort Oglethorpe on Friday, a man with a knife intimidated a clerk, stealing about $300.
