Sheriff: Robbery May Have Been Gang Related

A Chattooga County teenager was arrested on a robbery warrant early Friday morning, according to Sheriff Mark Schrader.

The robbery charge stems from an incident that happened in Pennville at a mobile home complex called Fields Walk, the sheriff said.

Matthew Jordan Schubert, 18, was arrested on one count of robbery.

“We are still looking into it. We believe it might have been a gang related incident that happened in the Fields Walk area,” Sheriff Schrader said.

Details are still coming together on this robbery, the sheriff said. The victim, whose name hasn’t been released yet, was bound and held against his will. A cellphone and wallet were taken during the robbery.

“There will probably be more arrests,” the sheriff said. The News will have more details on this robbery later.
