WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) - A Washington County manhunt ended in the arrest of two alleged armed robbers.
Sheriff Richard Stringer said the manhunt began Friday morning when the suspects, identified as Anthony Thomas and Linthom Jordan, pulled up to the Charles Busby Scrap Metal Yard in Tibbie.
He said Jordan, who was the passenger in the vehicle, got out and pulled a gun on several people at the scrap yard before demanding cash.
Sheriff Stringer said the employees complied and the two suspects made off with about $1,000.
Atmore search dogs, McIntosh Police, Chatom Police, Washington County Deputies and even Alabama State Troopers were called in to assist.
Sheriff Stringer said, thanks also in part to the public who continually called in with information about the vehicle, authorities were able to block the car.
Deputies did fire shots. However, the sheriff said no one was hit.
