A teen from East Ridge man has been identified as the person who robbed a woman in Catoosa County, Ga., after going through an ATM.

The Catoosa County Sheriff's Office had released his photo taken while he was at the ATM.

On Tuesday, the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office and the East Ridge Police Department located and arrested 19-year-old Allen Quennell Green. Green has been taken to the Hamilton County Jail where he will remain until his extradition to Catoosa County.  Once in Catoosa County, Green will face charges of armed robbery, hijacking a motor vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.


Sheriff Gary Sisk said on Aug. 3 shortly after midnight, the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office responded to West Circle Drive, Rossville, in reference to an armed robbery of a female. Upon investigation, it was found that the female had just finished using an ATM at a bank in Fort Oglethorpe.


The victim reported that a vehicle followed her through the ATM lane and continued to follow her until the vehicle bumped the rear of her vehicle. The victim later pulled over on West Circle Drive where two black males exited their vehicle, produced handguns and robbed the female.
