A Canton man has been arrested on charges of armed robbery dating back to 2014, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations announced.

Marcus Paul Milford, 52, was arrested June 7 by the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office on one count of armed robbery in Dawson County and on armed robbery in Union County.

According to the GBI:

Milford was indicted by a Dawson County Grand Jury and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest in May 2022, after the GBI identified him in an armed robbery at a Dawsonville CVS Pharmacy in 2015. During the 2015 armed robbery, prescription pills were stolen.

Milford was also identified by the GBI as the person responsible for a 2014 Blairsville CVS Pharmacy armed robbery. The GBI acquired an additional warrant for Milford for the Blairsville armed robbery, in which “a substantial amount” of prescription pills were taken, the bureau said.

The GBI, the Union County Sheriff’s Office and the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigations into the armed robberies.

As of Monday afternoon, Milford remained in custody at the Dawson County Detention Center, pending transfer to Union County to be booked on his Union County warrant.
