Police are "deliberating charges against a 20-year-old Savannah man identified as the suspect who robbed a health food store in an area where Metro SWAT and K-9 units were conducting a training exercise Thursday," a spokesman says.

The suspect was apprehended by an officer who was familiar with him from previous cases as the Special Weapons and Tactics, canine and West Chatham Precinct Patrol officers and a police helicopter saturated the area around Abercorn Street and Interstate 95.

The man reportedly "had robbed the GNC store on the first block of South Gateway Boulevard and fled on foot before the combined units flooded the area and found him leaving a wood line," police say. His name is being withheld until the investigation by detectives concludes.
