A Douglasville man arrested last week by Conyers Police Department for allegedly robbing a Title Bucks establishment at gunpoint may be facing federal charges for a spree of armed robberies throughout the state.

According to Conyers Police Public Spokesperson Kim Lucas, there's evidence to possibly connect Avery Frazier, 47, could be linked to as many as 35 similar armed robberies in the Metro-Atlanta Area and other parts of Georgia.

No one has been injured in any of the robbery cases.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is scheduled to meet with the U.S. District Attorney office in Atlanta Wednesday, Nov. 12, to discuss possible federal charges to bring against Frazier.

"We're pretty confident," said Lucas on whether federal charges will be brought against Frazier.

At least 15 different jurisdictions are involved with the current armed robberies Frazier allegedly committed. The FBI could be looking to do a "blanket charge" instead of having each jurisdiction bring cases against him.

Lucas says that it's possible that he could have robbed other businesses in other states as well, but there isn't any evidence to support that assumption.

"We have evidence to show he traveled a lot," she said. "It's not unimaginable to think he hit outside our borders. I would be interested to see if there are other states (he committed crimes in)."

The string of robberies allegedly committed by Frazier took place between March 2013 and Oct. 30, the day he allegedly robbed the Title Bucks off of Ga. Hwy 138 and Flat Shoals in Conyers at gunpoint.

Frazier was arrested by Douglasville Police Department Nov. 5 after warrants were taken out for his arrest by the Conyers Police. He was transferred over to Rockdale County Jail for local charges related to the Title Bucks incident that include armed robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Frazier is also connected to an armed robbery that happened in February at Georgia Auto Pawn located at 1730 Ga. Highway 138.

The invesetigation is still ongoing.
