Police issue warrant for suspected Stripes robber

LAWTON, Okla._There's been another breakthrough in the investigation into a series of recent robberies in Lawton.

Prosecutors have filed a robbery charge against Strother Jackson. They said that he has confessed to holding up the Stripes at 52nd Street and Gore Boulevard last month. Investigators also said Jackson has admitted to being involved with at least five other crimes in a two-week period that police have been investigating.

Jackson told police he's currently in Atlanta, so the District Attorney issued an arrest warrant for him. Court records did not indicate how they developed Jackson as a suspect.

Last month, Nijee Johnson was arrested and charged for her role in that same series of crimes.
