The Marshall County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the man suspected of robbing three Marshall County businesses at gunpoint Monday night.
Thomas Bell, III, 20, is in custody in the Marshall County Detention Center, charged with three counts of first degree robbery and three counts of first degree wanton endangerment. Police say Bell is from Benton, but has been living at an address in Calloway County.
Bell allegedly robbed the Brewers Grocery and the Brewers Liquor Store just moments apart at around 7:30 last night. A short time later, police were dispatched to Aurora One Stop regarding an armed robbery. Bell allegedly brandished a weapon and fired shots during one of the robberies.
Police later caught up with Bell in Hardin when a vehicle matching the description of the one used by the robber was located.
