The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a 36-year-old Commerce man in connection with an attempted armed robbery.
On Thursday, Feb. 13, the JCSO responded to an armed robbery call in the northern part of the county, where a store employee said a male entered the store, claimed to have a gun and demanded money. However, when another vehicle pulled into the parking lot, the suspect fled without getting any money.
Deputies located the suspect’s vehicle at a nearby residence, which led to a search of the vehicle and the residence. They found a gun in the vehicle.
After interviewing witnesses, investigators obtained a warrant on Kevin Blake Marchbanks for armed robbery. He remains at large.
Anyone with information on Marchbanks’ location is asked to call 911, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (706-367-8718) or the department’s anonymous tip line (706-367-3784).
