After Crime Stoppers gave a tip to the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, officers captured Shelia Ann Martin at a family member's house in Jackson, Georgia Friday morning.

Martin is being held without bond at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center on charges of Armed Robbery and Aggravated Assault.
