On September 17, 2011 the Dothan Police Department responded to an armed robbery at Discount Tobacco Outlet, 4183 West Main Street just after 7:00 p.m. Investigators have worked tirelessly on this investigation and say they have now identified and arrested three suspects wanted for this crime. The ongoing investigation has revealed Timothy Davis entered the store armed with a large knife and instructed the clerk to stay in the restroom. Davis then blocked the restroom door and let a second suspect, Joseph Speer into the building. The suspects took cash and miscellaneous items and left the store. The clerk was then able to exit the bathroom unharmed and call police.
Investigators say both Davis and Speer have been arrested and say a third arrest was made after investigators learned an additional suspect was responsible for planning the robbery. Police say Jessica Mims, a former employee of the business, provided information to Davis and Speer on the whereabouts of the money and other pertinent details about the business.
Timothy Roy Davis, white male, 21 years of age, of Slocomb, Alabama was arrested and charged with First Degree Robbery with a $175,000 bond.
