Two men broke into the Fayetteville Atlanta Bread Company but fled before getting any dough, said police.
Fayetteville police Detective Mike Whitlow said the pair was captured quickly because of a “fast” response by law enforcement officers.
“Fayetteville police arrived at the store within one minute and were able to immediately broadcast a lookout of the white 2003 Acura the males fled in as well as descriptions of the males,” said Whitlow.
Jamel McAllister, 24, of College Park, and Quentin Weems, 30, of Atlanta, are charged with armed robbery, burglary, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, wearing a mask to conceal identity and concealing the identity of a vehicle.
Whitlow said a 911 call came in June 30, about 2:58 a.m., from an employee at the Atlanta Bread Company inside Fayette Pavilion on Ga. Hwy. 85. The man told police he’d been robbed by two masked men, one of whom was armed, said Whitlow.
Whitlow said a Fayette County deputy heard the lookout, saw the Acura and stopped it on Ga. Hwy. 314 near Ga. Hwy. 138. The deputy recovered the gun used in the robbery, the mask and the clothes the men were wearing at the time of the robbery, he said.
“The men walked in on the employee who was working, pointed a gun at him and demanded the keys to the office,” said Whitlow. “The employee did not have the keys so the men forced entry into the office and unsuccessfully attempted to open the safe.”
The men fled without getting any money from the store. Whitlow said police are investigating the possibility that the men may have committed other crimes in the area.
Anyone with information about the pair should contact the Fayetteville Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit.
