Armed Robbery Investigation

On Friday, October 6, 2017, at approximately 6:18 AM., Canton Officers responded to an armed robbery call at Shottenkirk Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (200 Liberty Blvd, Canton, GA). An employee at the service department was ambushed by three black males who were armed with handguns. The suspects took the employee’s phone and three sets of keys from the service counter. The suspects each took a vehicle and fled the area before units arrived. A few minutes later, a Cherokee Sheriff's Office Deputy located one of the vehicles traveling southbound on I-575, attempted to stop the vehicle and the stolen car subsequently wrecked near I-575 and Hwy 92. The driver ran into the wood line and was unable to be located at that time.

In addition, the suspects were identified as being in their early 20’s. A more detailed description will be given when available.
