The Georgia Tech Police Department (GTPD) charged Steven Terry (also known as “Turk”) with armed robbery, burglary and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The arrest and indictment comes after an intensive investigation led by GTPD with the assistance of Crime Stoppers and the Atlanta Police Department.
“Our investigators tirelessly worked on this case,” said Captain Mickey Hembree. “We were able to generate leads through Crime Stoppers and to identify two suspects responsible for the armed robbery that occurred back on July 1, 2012.”
Terry was charged by GTPD while already in Fulton County Jail on unrelated charges.
GTPD is continuing to work with Crime Stoppers and other law enforcement agencies to track down Terrance Watley, who is also known as “Boo Boo.” Those with information on the location of Watley should contact the Georgia Tech Police Department at 404-894-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 (TIPS).
“Through the investigation, we’ve learned that these two individuals accessed the building by tailgating in behind students,” said Hembree. “The Georgia Tech Police Department has teamed up with Georgia Tech Housing Office on an educational campaign to make students aware of the dangers of tailgating.”
This week GTPD is also partnering with student leaders to educate the campus on good safety behaviors as well as resources available for students to help keep them safe.
