Two suspects have been arrested for allegedly committing multiple armed robberies in Cobb County, including four over a four-day span this week.
Cobb County police, Marietta police and Smyrna police worked together to identify Lashumbia Session, 38, of Marietta, and Mykia Wilson, 37, of Kennesaw, as the suspects. Police announced the arrests during a Thursday news conference, then tied Session and Wilson to two more alleged crimes Friday.
Their alleged spree includes robberies of a QuikTrip in Marietta on Sunday, a Family Dollar store in Austell on Monday, a QuikTrip in Powder Springs on Tuesday and a Reliable Pharmacy in Austell on Wednesday, authorities said.
Law enforcement in South Georgia arrested Session and Wilson on Thursday, authorities said.
They allegedly robbed the Family Dollar at 2051 Austell Road by demanding money from the register and safe. Cobb police said Session had a handgun.
The next day, Session and Wilson are accused of robbing a QuikTrip at 692 Powder Springs Street at gunpoint, demanding cash and driving away in a newer-model white sedan, Marietta police said.
No details were provided by Cobb police about the first QuikTrip robbery at 1350 South Cobb Drive and the Reliable Pharmacy robbery at 3999 Austell Road.
The investigation is ongoing.
