BETHEL SPRINGS, Tenn. - A man wanted in Murfreesboro for two armed robberies has been caught in Bethel Springs.

McNairy County deputies said Raheem Harris and a juvenile are also responsible for a robbery in Bethel Springs.

Sheriff Guy Buck said the two knocked on the door of the AT&T central office and asked the man for something to drink. When he opened the door one of the suspects pointed a gun at him and took his wallet and cell phone.

Authorities said the suspects ran onto the elementary school in Bethel Springs and attempted to blend in with the other kids.

"It's really scary that's just to close to home there's a lot of break-ins around here just to know that they came to the school where there is children," said Nikki Smith.
