Robbery Suspect Arrested After Traffic Stop

39 year old Michael Ramsey was arrested around nine Thursday night after a Bay County Sheriff's Deputy pulled him over near 11th Street and East Avenue in Panama City.

Investigators believe he is the suspect responsible for a string of robberies targeting 3 victims in Panama City Beach and one in Panama City.

The spree started around 7:30 Wednesday night at a home at 1219 Thomas Drive. The victim said he noticed a truck following him home then a man knocked on his door and robbed him.

The next robbery happened about 11:30 Wednesday night at the Condom Knowledge store on Thomas Drive. The same man pointed a leather holster at two employees demanded all the money in the cash register.

Then about 4:30 Thursday morning, he struck again at the Tom Thumb convenience store also on Thomas Drive, getting away with all the cash in the register.

Thursday night, a robbery happened at the Bay Breeze Coffee and Subs on Transmitter Road in Springfield by a man matching the description of the suspect of the three previous robberies.

Ramsey was stopped shortly after the robbery and in the car, warrant deputies found clothing, sunglasses, a gun holster, and a bandana all matched descriptions of the warrant suspect.

Ramsey has been charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm.
