Willacoochee Burglary Suspect’s High-Speed Chase from South GA to Alabama Grips Deputies

In a series of brazen burglaries spanning multiple counties, a Willacoochee man’s crime spree came to a dramatic end after a high-speed chase that concluded near Dothan, Alabama. Robert Rodriguez, the alleged mastermind behind a string of burglaries, is now behind bars, facing a litany of charges.

The Atkinson County Sheriff’s Office first became aware of Rodriguez’s criminal activities on December 22, 2023, when they responded to a burglary at the Dollar General in Axson. Shortly after, another distress call came in, reporting a break-in at the Axson Post Office. Deputies swiftly gathered video surveillance footage from the Dollar General, revealing a silver 2001 Honda Accord present at both crime scenes within a remarkably short timeframe.

Digging deeper, law enforcement discovered that the same vehicle had been reported stolen by the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office just two days prior on December 20. The Berrien County deputies had issued a “Be On the Lookout” (BOLO) alert, identifying Rodriguez as the suspect linked to the stolen vehicle. The connection between the stolen vehicle and the Axson burglaries was established when Rodriguez was caught on tape breaking into a business in Clinch County, using a crowbar – the same method employed in the Axson incidents.

The situation escalated on the following day when the Willacoochee Police Department reported the theft of a 2022 Dodge Flatbed truck. Deputies, already on high alert, received information that the stolen truck had been spotted in Lanier County at a liquor store. Rodriguez, allegedly armed with a crowbar, had reportedly broken into the store, swiping a bottle of liquor before attempting to flee towards Alabama.
