Police; Chambers County suspect confesses to multiple armed robberies

VALLEY, Ala (WRBL) - Valley Police say a man confessed to robbing a Dollar General Store last week.

Police say 19-year-old Traequan Javonte Green was seen outside of the Dollar General store located on Fairfax Bypass. Valley Police say they observed a small black vehicle left at the property and returned within a few minutes. Detectives say Green got out of the car and entered the store wearing all dark clothing. 

Officials say Green and his vehicle matched the description given of the suspect involved in the March 22nd robbery. Detectives say he left the store shortly after entering and started walking back to his vehicle. Detectives made the decision to approach him. When they patted him down, detectives say they found a two-tone semi-automatic pistol tucked into the front of his pants. 

Officials say they read Green his Miranda rights and he confessed that he was about to rob the store. During questioning, officials say he confessed the March 22nd robbery of the Dollar General store on 20th Avenue. He also confessed to armed robberies in Lee County and Opelika. 

Officials say Green was transported to the Valley Police Department where he was charged with Robbery 1st and Theft of Property 3rd for the March 22nd incident and future charges are still pending. 

Officials say they notified authorities in Lee County and Opelika. Green was processed and transported to the Chambers County Detention Facility.
