ALBANY — Two brothers have been charged following the armed robbery Thursday of a general store in East Albany.

The two men — Johnny Lee Hill, 23, and Kenton Dontae Hill, 19 — were stopped and questioned near the intersection of Church Street and Bonnyview Drive minutes after the robbery was reported Thursday morning. They were charged that afternoon with aggravated assault, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Johnny Hill was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to police officials, two men entered the Family Dollar Store on East Oglethorpe Boulevard around 9:30 a.m., robbed the store and fled on foot. A witness described the men as wearing camouflage and dark-colored, hooded sweatshirts. One of the men was described as having a prominent cut or scar on his face.

Johnny Hill has also been charged in connection with a car hijacking that occurred March 9 on Clark Avenue. APD spokesperson Phyllis Banks says that the hijacker paid the victim in the case to take him into East Albany and, once inside the vehicle, pulled a black handgun, then took the car and the victim’s money.

White? Black? Hispanic? Asian? If they know one has scar on his face then they know what color they are. Better descriptions would help.

It is the politics of this town. Never let the truth get in the way. We have no crime, no gangs and no problems. What a wonderful town we live in. Or am I being too dramatic? LOL

Ah, they couldn't have done it. They are a part of Albany's upstanding citizens base. Don't worry, by being a member of the Obama voting base, they'll be free by late afternoon.

I'm sure they did it out of ignorance. Nobody wrote down on 3x5 cards that you should not rob a Dollar Store.

Dollar Store at 9:30 in the morning?? How much money did they hope to find? Maybe yesterday's deposit or something, I guess.

The article said "A witness described the men as wearing camouflage and dark-colored hooded sweatshirts." This guy isn't wearing camouflage.

The article stated that one of the suspects is a suspect in the hijacking that happened last week. Is it the same hijacking where the victim's socks were stolen? You just cannot make this stuff up. LMAO
