Clay County Sheriff's Office booking photos of Micheal Robinson and Dennis Holcomb


Two men have been arrested in connection with a robbery at a Walmart store in Fleming Island earlier this month, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office saidĀ thanks to a tip called in following media coverage with a surveillance photo of the suspects, deputies were able to catch and arrest Micheal Robinson, 40, and Dennis Holcomb, 31, shortly after they committed another theft Wednesday.

Deputies said the men went into the Walmart on County Road 220 with Walmart bags concealed under their clothing.

Once inside, they placed multiple remote control helicopters in the bags and walked out of the store without paying, deputies said.

When approached by security personnel, one of the men displayed a firearm in his waistband, deputies said. For that reason, detectives considered the pair armed and dangerous.

The men were booked into the Clay County jail.
