6/30 Jackson Village Mart Robbery Suspect Turns Himself In

Twenty nine year old Andrew Lee Jemison of Milwaukee, who has been charged for allegedly robbing the Village Mart  in Jackson last year, is now being held on a ten thousand bond at the Washington County  jail after he turned himself in to the Washington County Sheriff’s office on Thursday. According to a news release provided by Jackson Police Department Chief Jed Dolnick, Jemison went into the Village Mart, on Glen Brooke Drive, on December 23rd and put a bottle of iced tea on the counter as if he was going to buy it. He then allegedly displayed the tip of what appeared to be a gun barrel and told the clerk to open the register. He said “I’m not playing around.” After getting the money he left the store on foot. Police recovered the bottle and took it to the Wisconsin Crime Laboratory for analysis. On May 13, the lab reported two fingerprints on the bottle matched Jemison’s. A warrant for his arrest was issued the following week. He made his initial appearance before Washington County Circuit Judge James Pouros on Friday. Jemison was advised of the charges, the penalties and his rights. Judge  Pouros ordered a $10,000 cash bond. Jemison’s next court appearance is August sixth.
