ATLANTA – The man wanted in two robberies in the Crabapple area last week has been arrested in Louisiana.
Vincent Anthony Baiamonte III, 27, of Hammond, La., and with ties to the Houston, Texas area, was arrested yesterday evening, Sunday, Oct. 6 at Baton Rouge, La. as a result of tips received from the public.
Baiamonte is charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault by the Alpharetta Public Safety Department in connection with the armed robbery of a Wells Fargo bank Sept. 30. In addition, Baiamonte is also charged by the Roswell Police Department for armed robbery of a CVS store which occurred Oct. 1. Federal charges against Baiamonte are anticipated.
On Monday, Sept. 30, at approximately 7 p.m., a lone man entered the CVS store, located at 12070 Crabapple Rd., Roswell, and, while brandishing a handgun, attempted a robbery. No injuries were reported during this attempted robbery.
The next day, Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 11:13 a.m., this same man entered the Wells Fargo bank, located at 12450 Crabapple Road, Alpharetta, and again brandished the same silver-colored handgun while announcing a robbery. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the robber departed the bank without further incident.
Baiamonte is currently being held by Baton Rouge, Louisiana authorities where he will await extradition back to Fulton County to face these charges.
