ATLANTA -- Atlanta Police now say they have both of the so-called baby stroller bandits.

Police arrested 18-year-old Joi Monai Jenkins Friday. 

In an e-mail statement Thursday, Atlanta Police spokesman John Chafee said 21-year-old Brandon Lawson was arrested in Macon for driving a stolen car and giving a false name to police.

Police say Lawson was already wanted in connection with several armed robberies in Buckhead. Police say Lawson and Jenkins and a baby in a stroller were caught on security camera video scouting potential victims outside the Publix grocery store across from Phipps Plaza.

Police say once they released video of the pair with the baby, tips began flooding in. Those tips, detectives say, helped them identify the suspects.
