A man wanted on robbery charges in Alabama was arrested Thursday in Fulton County, officials said.

Dezmon Robertson will now face local charges of trying to evade law enforcement officials, Fairburn police said.

Multiple agencies assisted in the arrest, including deputies from Fulton and Fayette counties and police officers from Union City and Palmetto. 

Robertson is accused of robbing two men who were trying to sell items on Facebook in July, the Florence TimesDaily reported.
