CORRECTIONS AND UPDATES (Jan. 8, 5:00 p.m.): It was originally reported that the incident which occurred on Monday evening was a robbery, it was in fact a burglary. It also happened on Stephens Street, not Madison Street.

Smyrna Police confirmed today that they have identified the second suspect in a Monday evening burglary on Stephens Street, and have secured a warrant for his arrest.

ORIGINAL STORY (Jan. 7, 6:00 p.m.): 
The Smyrna Police Department is looking for a man who officers believe was involved with a robbery off of Spring Road on Monday evening.

A Smyrna-Vinings Patch Twitter follower first tipped us off about the situation on Monday night when she said her husband had been approached by police warning him about a "guy on the loose." On Tuesday afternoon, Smyrna Police Cpl. Ed Cason was able to relay what authorities know about the case so far.

According to Cason, two people committed a robbery on Madison Street, which intersects with Spring Road just before Jonquil Sporting Goods and the Cumberland Animal Clinic

Cason then said that police later pulled over a suspicious vehicle behind the Smyrna Public Library. The person in the passenger seat of the vehicle fled the scene on foot, and evaded officers on the scene. The driver was confirmed to be in police custody.

The suspect who escaped is described as a black male with freckles on his nose and cheeks, standing anywhere from 5'8 to 5'10 and weighing between 140 and 160 lbs.

Anyone with information that can help identify the suspect is asked to contact the Smyrna Police Department at (770) 434-9481.
