Civilian holds robbery suspect at gunpoint in Lawrence County
LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. – A two-day search for a robbery suspect ended after he was held at gunpoint after a second robbery attempt, according to Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell.
Ryan Thomas Denham, 24, of Moulton, Ala., was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday on County 556 in the Caddo community. Mitchell said deputies surrounded the area after receiving a report that Denham had attempted to rob a man at gunpoint.
Sheriff Mitchell said that when the victim would not give Denham what he wanted, he walked away. A short time later, a civilian was able to capture Denham at gunpoint. He was taken into custody without further incident, according to Mitchell.
Denham faces two counts of robbery and is also a suspect in a church burglary that occurred Tuesday night, according to Mitchell. He is currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail with no bond set at this time.
