The US Marshals Southeastern Regional Fugitive Task Force and Bibb County Sheriff’s Investigators arrested 19 year old Jacob Elijah Miller Monday afternoon just after 2:30 p.m. at an address in Atlanta Georgia.
Miller was arrested on a Crimestoppers tip in relation to the shooting of Brooklyn Rouse that occurred on December 26, 2016 outside 2443 Vivian Drive. Rouse was delivering a pizza for Papa Johns at the time of the shooting. Miller was transported from Atlanta back to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division. Miller was arrested on warrants for Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder, Armed Robbery and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
Bibb Sheriff David Davis said, “Frequently we see that these individuals are so fearless when they commit the crime, but they run like a chicken when facing the consequences of their cold blooded acts. It’s both shocking and troubling when a person, who is trying to make a living in a productive society, is attacked by callous predators who mostly likely know nothing of real work. We can be thankful for the teamwork of Bibb investigators, US Marshals, and community members who made the call to CrimeStoppers for all their efforts which resulted in the capture of this suspect in this senseless assault.”
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
