A suspect has been identified in a robbery that happened yesterday in the northwest corner of Smith County. 27-year-old Dabbric Lavan is in the Smith County Jail facing five charges, including aggravated robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say Lavan kicked in a woman's backdoor on County Road 437, took her keys, and drove off in her car. She immediately called police, and Lavan was caught on I-20 in Canton.
Lavan told police there were two other men with him at the time of the robbery. Police say that turned out to be false information.
