SWAT officers arrest murder, robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, SWAT officers arrested 23-year-old Johnathan Kirkland. Authorities believe Kirkland is behind a series of smash and grabs across the city.

Police had a tough time apprehending Kirkland; he was on the run for about a year. The suspect is wanted for a range of violent crimes from murder to robbery.

Atlanta Police say Kirkland is the mastermind behind a number of area ATM thefts including the one at the Sweet Auburn Crub Market. He is also believed to be responsible for dislodging an ATM at a government office by driving a van through the front of the building.

Kirkland is also accused of murdering a man at local nightclub, Deja Vu, in December. 

Police are crediting the community with helping them make the arrest.
