Several suspects have been charged in connection with a December 2007 robbery at the Save-A-Lot store in Fulton. About 7 a.m. Monday, officers from the Fulton Police Department served three sealed indictments at three residences in Fulton. At the same time, officers from the Fulton and South Fulton police departments attempted to serve a sealed indictment at a residence in South Fulton. In addition, one final indictment was sent to the Obion County Law Enforcement Complex to be served on an inmate currently held there, according to a press release from the Fulton Police Department. As a result, Fulton police arrested three suspects but failed to locate a fourth suspect in South Fulton. Among those arrested on charges of robbery and engaging in organized crime, based on sealed indictments issued by the Fulton County (Ky.) grand jury, were Matera Sharie Pate, 20, of 226 Vernon Ave., Fulton; Johanna Elise Spears, 31, of 1005 Airport Road, Royal Apt. E-2, Fulton; and Tanya Erica Brown, 27, of 235 Vernon Ave., Fulton. At the local jail, the Obion County Sheriff’s Department served Cornilios Lashaun Woody, 24, of 1512 East Main St., Union City, with an indictment from Fulton County charging him with robbery, engaging in organized crime and second-offense persistent felony offender. Officers were initially unable to locate Michelle Lynnette Fields, 24, at her residence at 305 Connell Drive, Eaglewood A2, Apt. 4, in South Fulton but she later turned herself in to the custody of officers at the Fulton Police Department. She was also served with an indictment for robbery and engaging in organized crime. All of the charges were based on a reported robbery of the Save-A-Lot store in Fulton on Dec. 19, 2007. Fulton police investigators developed information and followed up on leads, which resulted in a case being presented to the Fulton County grand jury. After reviewing the presented case, the grand jury returned true bills, which were sealed until they were served by police. Fulton Police Chief Terry G. Powell led officers in the early-morning hour service of the indictments Monday and said he was very pleased with the results. Ms. Pate was also charged with an additional Fulton County warrant of fourth-degree assault stemming from an unrelated incident. Published in The Messenger 8.26.08
