U.S. Marshals Task Force Captures Dollar General Store Armed Robbery Suspect in Tennessee

Jackson, TN – U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller announces the arrest of Roger Spencer Jr. for Aggravated Robbery and Aggravated Assault that occurred in McNairy County, TN.

On June 19, 2021 the Dollar General Store on Hwy. 45 in McNairy County was robbed at gun point by two males. The next day, the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department issued a warrant for Roger Spencer Jr. for the robbery. The fugitive case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force.

On June 30, 2021 investigators with the Task Force tracked the fugitive to a residence in Antioch, Tennessee. With the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Office in Nashville, TN, Spencer was contacted at that residence and taken into custody without incident. Spencer had an Aggravated Robbery warrant and two counts of Aggravated Assault.

“Violent crimes demand a swift response, and the Marshals service was glad to help provide one,” said Marshal Tyreece Miller.

The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force is a multi-agency task force in the Western District of Tennessee with offices in Memphis and Jackson. Its membership is composed of Deputy U.S. Marshals, Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies, Memphis Police Officers, Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputies, Jackson Police Officers, and Special Agents with the Tennessee Department of Correction. The primary mission of the Task Force is to arrest violent offenders and sexual predators.
