Safe Streets Task Force investigators said Williams became a suspect based on information given by both victims and citizens in the Pine Hill area.

Williams was taken into custody Tuesday.  Investigators said he may be responsible for additional robberies in the community.  Anyone with information that could aid investigators should call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.
