Arrest In Armed Robbery Of Dollar General In Locust Grove

A suspect was arrested after the Dollar General Store in Locust Grove was robbed at gunpoint late Monday afternoon. It happened at around 5:15 p.m. when a man with a mask over his face entered the Dollar General on Goodwin Drive and forced a clerk to hand over money from the register. About 30 minutes later, a Food Lion on Route 3 in Spotsylvania was robbed by a man matching the description in the Locust Grove incident. Spotsylvania deputies captured the suspect who’s identified as 30-year-old Andre Jovon Jenkins of Woodbridge. Jenkins is held without bond at the Rappahanock Regional Jail.
