(WDEF)  The Dalton Police Department has obtained warrants for the arrest of 38-year-old Michael Roberts in connection with the May 29th robbery at Dalton Drug at 2709 Airport Road. He’s wanted on warrants for armed robbery and aggravated assault.

The incident happened shortly after 2:30 pm on Wednesday afternoon when a suspect who has been identified by investigators as Michael Roberts entered the Dalton Drug pharmacy and demanded pain pills. After he was refused by an employee, the suspect threw gasoline onto the employee from a small drink bottle he was carrying. He grabbed a bottle of hydrocodone and fled from the store on foot. Investigators worked into the night to develop leads and identified Roberts using surveillance video from the scene. Investigators also received tips from the public after an image of the suspect was made public Wednesday night.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Michael Roberts is asked to please contact Detective Greg Bates with the Dalton Police Department at 706-278-9085 extension 137.
