Posted By on Wed, Feb 17, 2016 at 12:18 PM

Detectives from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department investigated a failed drug transaction turned robbery at approximately 9 p.m., Feb. 16, near a restaurant in the 2700 block of Montgomery Street.

Lloyd Ramon Bellinger, 40, is charged with conspiracy to commit a drug sale of Percocet.

SCMPD patrol officers, K-9, and detectives responded to the scene in reference to a report of an armed robbery.

"Upon further investigation, detectives determined the robbery was the result of a failed drug transaction," says Sonny Cohrs of the SCMPD Public Affairs Office.

Bellinger reportedly robbed the female victim with a BB gun and fled the scene. Patrol officers later observed an individual matching the suspect’s description, who was later identified by a witness at the scene.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
