Robbery suspect in custody

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said the man who robbed Ian's Market on Morganton Road on Christmas Eve is in custody and charged with multiple counts.

Micah Lee Sherwood, 24, Arrowhead Drive, Maryville, is being held in the Blount County Detention Facility on bonds totaling $101,000 pending a hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court at 1:30 p.m. January 8th. Sherwood is charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division followed up on several leads regarding the identity of the man who robbed a store clerk at gunpoint at Ian's Market early Tuesday morning. Their investigation led to the arrest of Sherwood this morning and he was taken into custody at his residence on Arrowhead Drive at around 10:30.

Sherwood is currently serving parole from a conviction for attempted robbery in 2011.
