Fayetteville Police Arrest former Zaxby’s employee for 2007 Armed Robbery of Zaxby’s store.

The Fayetteville Police arrested Erika Tiggs, a former Zaxby’s employee, for her part in an armed robbery which had occurred at the Fayetteville Zaxby’s. On August 6, 2007, two suspects entered the Zaxby’s store on GA Hwy 85, forced the employees into a cooler and robbed the store of approximately $2000.00 in cash.

Police obtained evidence at the scene which was sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Crime lab to determine if there was DNA present. Detectives received notification from the GBI that there was DNA present. Detectives then obtained DNA from Tiggs, who had been identified as a suspect early in the investigation.

Detectives were recently notified that the DNA sample from Tiggs matched the sample obtained from evidence at the scene. Detectives received an arrest warrant and took Tiggs into custody this morning at her job, without incident.

In July of this year, three other suspects pled guilty to robbing a Zaxby’s employee in a separate incident that had occurred on February 9, 2009. Fayetteville Police are investigating the possibility that the two incidents are related. Anyone with information about these cases is encouraged to contact Detective Scott Israel at the Fayetteville Police Department (770) 719-4223.
