Columbia Police Make Arrest After String of Robberies
COLUMBIA - Columbia Police have made an arrest that helped to solve 12 recent robberies from September 22, 2011 to December 8, 2011.
Police arrested Jessica M. Harris of Columbia during a routine traffic stop Wednesday afternoon. Columbia Police stopped Harris' van at the request of detectives who were in the area. The van did not have a front license plate and was very similar to the vehicle viewed on surveillance videos being used in the recent string of robberies in Columbia.
Harris was wanted for an unrelated case concerning receiving stolen property and was transported to the police department to be interviewed by detectives.
