Police have arrested two men and charged them with back-to-back robberies that took place in April.

Christopher Andrews, 25, of Marietta and Quinton Wilson, 27, of Jonesboro each face two counts of armed robbery and two counts of aggravated assault for allegedly robbing a SunTrust Bank on Sandy Plains Road and a Family Dollar on Powder Springs Road in late April.

Investigations by the Marietta Police Department linked the robberies to the suspects. Detectives then linked the men to a larger rash of armed robberies that took place around the metro Atlanta, according to information from Marietta Police.

The two men were located and arrested by Douglas County Sheriff's Major Crimes Unit and the Douglasville Police Department. They are being held in the Douglas County Detention Center without bond and additional charges could be filed as investigations continue.
