Villa Rica Police say 23-year-old Bernard Hunt, of Atlanta, was arrested Wednesday in the June 26 robbery at a store in Villa Rica.

Police have said the store's 45-year-old owner, Mitch Mobley, was killed during the robbery. Authorities have said a group of men came into the store and used hammers to break glass display cases to steal watches.

Four other suspects, including a 16-year-old boy, have already been arrested in the armed robbery and slaying. They're being held in the Carroll County jail on armed robbery and murder charges.

It's unclear if Hunt has an attorney.
