Sheriff Eric Levett said, "The creation of this task force is the first step to combine intelligence that has been gathered from the agencies investigating the previous 13 robberies at the Starship locations around the metro area. The Starship business in Rockdale County has been the victim of two armed robberies this year and that is two too many. The RCSO will allocate all available resources to identify and track down this dangerous criminal.
