artstephensThere is always something crazy happening at Walmart and yesterday was no exception when Atlanta resident Roger Stephens, 61, decided to make an afternoon visit to the store.

When Stephens heard a 2-year-old crying loudly in the store, he reportedly approached the mother and stated, “If you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.” The mother claims that Stephens grabbed the baby and slapped her four times until she was quiet at which point he stated, “See I told you I would shut her up.”

Stephens was then arrested and charged with first-degree cruelty to children. Parents nationwide are outraged at the flagrant display of abuse on an afternoon shopping trip.

titlemaxAn Atlanta FBI task force has arrested a man suspected in at least three bank robberies in metro Atlanta. David Conn, 30, was arrested on July 14 in Decateur by the FBI-led Atlanta Metropolitan Major Offenders unit, based on investigations by Sandy Springs and Atlanta police. Conn was arrested for a July 1 robbery of a Wachovia bank in North Fulton, the June 25 attempted robbery of a Bank of America in Sandy Springs, and the June 10 robbery of a Wachovia in Atlanta, Sandy Springs spokesman Lt. Steve Rose said.

Sandy Springs and AMMO officers were able to track Conn by a note he used to rob one of the banks which he left at the scene. The note said he had placed a bomb in the building and was demanding money, and when Conn fled, he left the note behind. Because the note had been written on a loan-for-title document from Title Max, investigators were able to form a list of potential subjects through the company, and then were able to identify Conn himself by comparing bank surveillance photos with those of the potential subjects.
