On December 19, police responded to a 911 call reporting a robbery of a pedestrian on Briarwood Road in Brookhaven. The victim was able to give police a partial tag number and description of the suspect. 

An investigation by Brookhaven police led them to obtain a warrant for the arrest of 33-year-old Jamara Parker from Atlanta.

While on duty patroling Buford Highway Monday morning, Brookhaven Police officers spotted the vehicle used in the robbery. They conducted a traffic stop and were able to arrest Parker without incident.
