Marietta Police Officer David Baldwin said Sarin is being held without
bond in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center. He has been charged with
armed robbery and firearm possession; more charges are pending.
Investigators said Sarin's crimes started at about 4:30 a.m. Monday at the Canton Package Store on Canton Road in Marietta, when a suspect spent about an hour trying to get into the closed business. Surveillance video from the business showed the suspect trying to get in through a drive-thru window and then through the front door.
