Kingsland police arrest 2 robbery suspects

WOODBINE, Ga. -- Two male teens were arrested after they were positively identified as suspects in a robbery that occurred at Subway on Harriets Bluff Road on Monday evening.

Jonathan O'Leary Lemay, 17, of Woodbine and a 16-year-old juvenile, also of Woodbine, were found in the early hours of Tuesday morning near a Flash Foods store on Harriets Bluff Road, just a mile away from the Subway.

Shortly after 11 p.m., Kingsland Police Department officers were called to Subway after a female clerk reported that two white males who appeared to be under the age of 21 had stolen an undetermined amount of money from the cash register. There was no weapon displayed during the robbery and no one was injured, according to a release from Lt. Todd Tetterton of the KPD.

Working with a bloodhound team from the Camden County Sheriff's Office, as well as its own bloodhound team, the KPD began searching for the suspects. A shirt that may have been worn by one of the suspects was located, and then the scent trail ran out.

Lemay and the juvenile were located around 1:24 a.m. Tuesday after a person was able to match them to the pictures on the surveillance camera. The clerk was also able to positively identify them.

Lemay was arrested and transported to the Camden County Jail in Woodbine. The juvenile was arrested and transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Detention Center in Savannah pending processing. They were both charged with a felony charge of robbery and a misdemeanor charge of possession of alcohol by a minor.
