Two men believed to be responsible for robbing Dollar General, 1265 Iris Drive, Conyers, are in police custody following information given to Conyers Police by an alert witness.

Jahii Ellison, 21 of Conyers, was charged with robbery and Quentin Bussell, 32, Jonesboro, was charged with making false statements in connection to the robbery that took place on Thursday, Feb. 9.

One suspect entered the Dollar General around 6:00 p.m. and brought something from the Valentines area to the register. The suspect jumped across the counter pushing the employee out of the way and took an undisclosed amount of money from the register. An alert witness observed the suspect getting into a waiting Nissan Cube vehicle.  The witness followed the vehicle to the Tall Oaks Apartments as the suspects fled the scene. Officers and Rockdale County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene and secured the outside of the apartment where the Nissan Cube was located.

Quentin Bussell, the owner of the vehicle, was detained and questioned by officers. Bussell provided false statements to officers and was subsequently arrested. Jahii Ellison was located hiding inside the residence and taken into custody without incident.
