A joint investigation was launched between the Vilonia and Cabot Police Departments. They developed a suspect: Cody Lane Cagle.
Tuesday, Feb. 5, a search warrant was executed at Cagle’s home in Cabot. Authorities reported finding and collecting evidence. Cagle was then brought to the White County Sheriff’s Department where he was advised of his Miranda Rights. Cagle spoke to investigators and provided a statement that authorities say indicates his involvement in the armed robbery of both stores.
