In December 2018, all leads for the suspects had grown cold and their whereabouts were unknown. Investigators with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit discovered the suspects had fled to the State of Washington and changed their names in order to hide from law enforcement. Through excellent investigation work the suspects were identified, located and arrested in Kitsap County Washington thru cooperation with the US Marshals and the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The suspects are currently in custody and awaiting extradition to Cobb County, Georgia for prosecution.

A Marietta man was arrested Wednesday on charges he held up a St. Louis-area casino and fired shots at an armed security guard. Illinois prosecutors charged Daryl V. Muhammad, 42, with armed robbery/discharging of a firearm and aggravated battery with a fireman earlier this month, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Cobb County sheriff’s deputies and U.S. marshals tracked him to a business on Canton Road, and he was booked into the county jail Wednesday night. Muhammad was one of three men wanted in connection with the Sep. 17, 2017, armed robbery at the Casino Queen in East St. Louis. They are accused of wearing guns and carrying rifles when they entered the casino just before 3 a.m. and fired shots, hitting the security guard, the Post-Dispatch reported. The guard has since recovered from serious internal injuries.

While there were patrons inside at the time, no one else was injured, according to the newspaper. The men allegedly made off with money from the casino’s cash drawers. The other two are still wanted by authorities. Muhammad was being held without bond, jail records show, and is expected to be extradited to Illinois for prosecution.
