A 28-year-old man has been charged with the Dec. 29 robbery of the Airbase Hill Sprint Mart.
Christopher Wayne Brock, of 1322 Mike Parra Road, was arrested at 1533 Cal-Vernon Road Sunday at about 2 a.m. by Lowndes County sheriff”s deputies responding to a Crime Stoppers tip.
Deputies had been looking for Brock since he allegedly reached over the Sprint Mart counter and snatched roughly $100 while the clerk was changing a dollar for him.
Brock, who was charged with robbery, has probably generated the most Crime Stoppers tips Columbus Police Public Information Officer Terrie Songer has ever received, she said.
Of the 13 or so tips called in, some were incorrect, sending deputies to Clay County and Alabama, Songer said.
