Guns were drawn by the Greenville Police Department (GPD) in the Walmart parking lot Saturday around 6 p.m. Police Chief Justin Lovvorn confirmed that after witnessing a traffic violation, an officer ran the vehicle’s tag number and discovered the older model Honda Accord was stolen from Colquitt County Georgia, and the two individuals occupying the car had a hold placed on them for larceny by the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Department.

The GPD performed a felony stop in the Walmart parking lot and arrested Alen Kennedy, a 27 year old black male from Camden, for receiving stolen property first degree and fugitive from justice. Sequoia Adams, a 21 year old black female from Thomason, was also arrested for giving a false name to law enforcement and fugitive from justice. 

Lovvorn commends his officers for excellent execution of the situation.
