The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office has obtained warrants for two suspects accused of an armed robbery in 2018.

The robbery happened in July of 2018 at the Dollar General on Highway 36 and Gum Springs Cutoff Road.

According to the sheriff’s office, investigators used DNA to identify the suspects. They’ve obtained warrants for two men from Birmingham, Steven Kennedy and Raymond Beryl Esters.
