Bibb County sheriff's investigators arrested a third person accused of robbing BP gas station Wednesday morning in the 4700 block of Houston Road.

Randy "Judd" Dewayne Barnett Jr. was found Friday morning at a family member's home near the Bibb-Twiggs county boarder

Tyler Sawyer, 20, of Macon was arrested Thursday night and Joseph Clance, 24, was arrested Wednesday evening at the Day's Inn off of Jeffersonville Road in east Macon.

Clance, Sawyer, and Barnett are believed to be three of four men who played the gaming machines at the gas station for an hour before robbing the place at gun point.

The three men are being held in Bibb County jail without bond.

The robbers took the cash register, lottery tickets, the clerk's cell phone and wallet.


A search warrant of the hotel room where Clance was arrested turned up lottery tickets, tobacco products, a 9mm handgun, cell phones, marijuana, several pills in a plastic bag, and $364.75, a sheriff's office news release states.

Anyone with information on the case can call the Bibb County Sheriff's Office at (478) 751-7500.
