Doraville resident Earnest Williams has been indicted for an armed robbery and hostage situation involving an Acworth couple. Williams allegedly broke into the home of Morris and Linda Shanahan back on April 25 and robbed them at gunpoint.
Williams allegedly stole $300 and a .38 caliber pistol from Morris Shanahan's bedroom safe. He also took $6 from Linda Shanahan's purse. After the robbery, Williams fled the scene.
Williams now faces several charges, including armed robbery, home invasion, kidnapping, possessing a firearm while committing a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His arrest warrant reveals a previous conviction for aggravated assault in Dallas, Texas, in 2019.
Authorities apprehended Williams the day after the incident, and he has been held without bond at the Cobb jail since April 26, according to the Cobb Sheriff's Office.
