Cobb cops: Serial armed robber hit 3 businesses before turning self in

A Marietta man remained in jail Monday morning after turning himself in last week on three armed robbery charges.

Cobb County police accuse Tyler Jamal Hill of robbing a Jimmy John’s, a hotel and a bank — all at gunpoint.

The first allegation dates back to Dec. 10, when police say Hill robbed the Araamda Inn at 5300 South Cobb Drive.

According to a warrant, he handed the clerk a note that read: “I have a gun if you don’t give me all the cash I’m going to shoot you.” He made off with $768.

The next alleged crime scene was a SunTrust Bank at 1380 Powers Ferry Road on Dec. 20.

He handed a note to the teller that said “100s and 50s,” according to a warrant. He also mouthed that to the bank employee, cops said.

“Hurry up and don't push no buttons,” he told her. But the worker did activate the panic button before giving him $961, according to the warrant.

Hill's last alleged armed robbery was at a Jimmy John's, 1337 Powers Ferry Road on Jan. 28.

He walked up to the sandwich shop’s counter and said, “Give me all that (expletive),” before allegedly pulling a handgun from his pants so the cashier could see it.

Hill got $240 and left.

In all, he got $1,969 in three armed robberies, according to police.

He turned himself in on Wednesday and is in jail without bond, jail records show.
