Police said a 19-year-old has been charged in armed robberies at Krystals at 307 Cherokee Blvd. and 1850 Hixson Pike.

Nolandus Dwayne Sims, of 2302 Windsor St., is facing two counts of aggravated robbery. Police said he admitted to taking part in the Hixson Pike robbery, but not the one in North Chattanooga.

Police said a female was with Sims at the Hixson Pike armed robbery and another black male on Cherokee Boulevard. He told police the idea for the Hixson Pike robbery was by a female named Meika Jones and he went along. Police have not been able to locate a Meika Jones.

Sims said he and the female were armed with BB guns.

Police said on Dec. 30 at Hixson Pike the pair went in armed with guns. They stuck a gun to the neck of a female employee and forced her and two other employees to the floor. The female grabbed the manager and forced him to the office. She had him open the safe and empty the deposits.

The pair fled on foot toward the nearby Dollar General Store.

Police said on the Cherokee Boulevard holdup on Dec. 13, the pair forced employees to the floor. They then made the manager open the safe. 

One robber told the manager, "This is a robbery, not a murder."

The pair left in a gold Nissan Altima.

Police said the same pair of shoes was worn in both robberies and the holdups were similar. Officers said Sims was wearing the same pair of shoes seen in videos of the robberies when he was questioned last Friday.

Bikers Need To Have Licenses And Insurance - And Response

I am okay with Haslam’s idea of raising the gas tax and lowering the food tax.  But, I want to see a tax of bicycles since they have their own lanes now and they also have to be maintained. How much revenue would that bring in?  I would think if we have enough bike riders to have the lanes in the first place, there must be enough to generate some money for road improvements. ...

Roy Exum: Just One Year Later…

If I hadn’t actually seen it happen, I would never have believed it. Not only did I wonder if it could ever happen, more often than not my disgust and dismay of such rampant disorder has filled me with more gloom and doom than you’ll find in a liberal Democrat on this, Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day. But I have got to proclaim that Thursday night I have never been as proud of the ... (click for more)

Smooth-Operating Cameron Leads Tyner Past 'Canes

Tyner may occasionally have an off night scoring, but that Rams defense is always spot-on. East Hamilton saw that first hand Thursday night in a hot Tyner Academy gymnasium. It didn’t rain points. Neither offense was sparkling, but the Rams had a distinct edge on one end of the court throughout the game – East Hamilton’s. The Rams got to almost every loose ball, most ... (click for more)
