Moody allegedly approached the robbery victim while he was drying his car, held him at gunpoint and demanded money.

Moody then fled to the Dollar General parking lot and was seen getting in to the backseat of the same Dodge Durango the victim reported.

Police tracked the Durango through surveillance video and were able to find the owner's home.

The Durango belonged to Gracie Rollins, 27, of Zedaker Street. Police suspect Rollins was driving the car when the suspects fled the scene.

Moody is charged with aggravated robbery and Rollins is charged with obstructing justice.

After further investigation, police found that the gun obtained from the scene matched the description of a firearm listed as stolen in Pennsylvania.
