Circle K Robbery

Colby Fann

Douglas County deputies have arrested a Florida man accused of robbing a convenience store clerk at gunpoint earlier this year.

Colby Jon Fann, 32, of Miami Gardens, Florida, made his first appearance in Douglas County Magistrate Court on Friday. Fann's bond was denied.

According to Sheriff's Lt. Glenn Daniel, the incident occurred in April at the Circle K on West Stewart Mill Road in Douglasville.

"At the time, an unknown male came in the store, produced a handgun and demanded money," Daniel said.

The suspect, later identified as Fann, reportedly stole $380.

Court records show Fann was booked into the Douglas County Jail on Thursday.

"Fann was arrested in Douglasville after he attended a court hearing on an unrelated matter," Daniel said.

This isn't the first time the Circle K on West Stewart Mill had been robbed. Johnny Jarriel Jr. was the manager on duty the morning of Nov. 2, 2013 when an armed robber approached him the office of the store. The robbery garnered attention after Jarriel was fired for using a gun for protection.

Maryann Humphrey, a night clerk at the store, was killed during an armed robbery in 2009.
