Armed Robbery Suspect Caught

An armed robbery suspect is behind bars. Octavius Harris is in the Chatham County Detention Center tonight after someone spotted his picture on the news and tipped police that he was staying at a Savannah hotel.

Officers surrounded the hotel and knocked on the door. Harris broke out a window trying to escape; however, he ran right into another officer and K-9 team.

Harris is being charged with two armed robberies at Victory Drive grocery stores. He's also the suspect in several other armed robberies, including one early this morning at the Parker's convenience store on Drayton Street. Police believe Harris carjacked a man to get away. Harris hasn't been charged in that robbery, but he is a suspect.
