Suspect once focus of massive manhunt captured

Posted: Updated:

Forsyth County sheriff's office arrested a man wanted for a number of crimes across metro Atlanta.

Kinneth Battle, 21, is being held without bond in Forsyth County. Law enforcement officers captured Battle when he ran from them Wednesday in Roswell.

Battle was one of two suspects accused in the early morning robbery of a convenience store March 15 in Alpharetta.

Law enforcement officers later tracked the pair to a Forsyth County home using the tag and vehicle description of the getaway car.

As officers arrested Battle's accomplice, he escaped through the back of the house. This sparked a massive manhunt that day.

Forsyth County sheriff's office stated in a post on its Facebook page that Battle faces a number charges in several jurisdictions.
