Arrest made for home invasion armed robbery in Athens


Shadarious Lamontae Allen

By Joe Johnson

A suspect has been arrested for a home invasion robbery in Athens last month in which a pair of intruders pointed guns at a resident and her children.

According to Athens-Clarke County police, the incident occurred the afternoon of Aug. 3 when a male and female dressed all in black and wearing face masks that went up to their eyes knocked on the door of a home on Hemlock Drive.

When the resident answered the door, police said, the suspects forced their way inside and pointed guns at the 48-year-old woman, as they made her squat on the floor, and her two children while shouting multiple times, “Give me all you got.”

The female reportedly trained a gun at the resident's head while pointing a second gun at the children, who had been on a couch and watching a movie.

Meanwhile, the male rummaged through items in the living room and now and again pointed his gun at the male child and demanded that he give all that he had, according to police.

The home invaders left the residence with stolen goods that included a wallet, $150 in cash, a cellphone valued $1,000, and 125 doses of narcotics of a type that was not disclosed by police.

All three victims told investigators that they knew the male robber because he hung out frequently in their neighborhood, according to police, but they did not recognize the female. Police said the victims gave a description of the male and of a car they remembered seeing him drive.

The investigating detectives were able to identify the male suspect as 22-year-old Shadarious Lamontae Allen of Highland Park Drive, police said, and he was arrested Sunday on charges of first-degree home invasion, armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and three counts of aggravated assault.

The female home invader had not been identified as of Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Curious to know what, if anything, happened to the owners of the: "125 doses of narcotics of a type that was not disclosed by police." If the owners were stupid enough to admit that's something that was stolen, well, they should visit the inside of the jail also.

I know, this is Athens and "Debra Gonzo" is an accessory to many crimes.

Athens is a cesspool of rotten people and has gone down that road for a long time. I’m not sure but if all the students at UGA could be made to go home to their own districts to vote we would see a lot of difference in our government here.

O No he din't! Shadarious, you idiot! You robbed someone who knows you. And you got away with basically nothing. How about 10 years for armed robbery and 15 more for stupidity! Athens is mostly dangerous now because of the plague of guns. But add stupidity to the mix and we're worse than Chicago!
