Two Face Robbery Charges in Forsyth, Gwinnett

Following several months of work, investigators from both Forsyth County and Gwinnett County arrested two men relating to multiple armed robberies in their jurisdictions.

Forsyth County Corporal Doug Rainwater says the investigation began after a robbery at the Mangia Ristorante on McGinnis Ferry Road in Forsyth County.

He says the Forsyth Major Crimes Unit and Gwinnett Robbery Unit worked together from August 2017 through October 2017 to gather enough evidence to make two arrests.

He says criminal arrest warrants were issued for Dametrius Sims of Snellville and Oshay Howard of Norcross after detectives were able to link the men to a total of 6 armed robberies in the two counties.

Currently, Sims is being held in the Gwinnett jail and Howard was booked into the Forsyth County jail.
