The past year in Statham, there have been four armed robberies, two of which occurred last month at gas stations.
Police chief Steve Martin approached the city with the idea of offering a reward for citizens with information to come forward. He said that the police department had received some tips, but nothing substantial enough to make an arrest. He thinks citizens need more incentive.
“Any money that (the city) might be able to offer would hopefully move things along,” Martin said.
He added that an issue with offering an award is that there could be more than one suspect, and the reward may have to be paid twice.
