Conyers police recently arrested five men and are investigating one man and looking for another in connection with the armed robbery of a Wendy's on June 13.

Conyers Police Department spokesperson Capt. Scott Freeman two suspects were the gunmen that went into Wendy's, one was the getaway driver and the other four were lookouts. None of the suspects involved worked at Wendy's.

Calvin Leon Chambers Jr., 22, of Atlanta is suspected as the getaway driver, Randall Lee Peterson, 21, of Alpharetta, Javonte Terrel Jackson, 19, of Conyers and Jamonte Quinshawn Hambrick, 17, of Decatur were lookouts, and Derontay Goolsby, 18, of Atlanta was one of the gunmen.

Chambers, Peterson, Jackson and Hambrick are being charged with A party to the Crime of Armed Robbery and A party to the Crime of Burglary. Goolsbty is being charged with armed robery and burglary.

Jamal Junayd Woods, 29, of Atlanta, also a suspected lookout, is also charged with A party to the Crime of Armed robbery and A party to the Crime of Burglary and is currently at large. The seventh individual involved is currently under investigation

After midnight on Sunday, June 13, two suspects with covered faces broke in the glass door of the Wendy's located at 1655 Highway 138 and robbed an employee of the night deposit at gun point.  

When officers arrived on the scene, they followed a trail of blood that lead from Wendy's to a cell phone that was recovered. The phone belonged to Calvin Leon Chambers, Jr.  According to Freeman, further investigation revealed that Chambers was the getaway driver, and he was arrested by Conyers Police detectives.

The unidentified suspect is believed to be the one who injured his hand as they entered the store through the broken glass door, according to Freeman. Freeman said Goolsby also had an injury to his hand, but it is not believed to be severe enough to have left the blood trail.

Over the next couple of days, with assistance from the DeKalb County Police Department and members from the Atlanta Fugitive Squad, six of the seven suspects were interviewed and provided confessions and/or admissions of guilt. The identity and location of the seventh suspect is still unknown at this time.
