A fourth individual has been arrested by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office in connection with a residential armed robbery that took place in early December.
Silvina Necole Barragan, 29, of Talmo was arrested on Tuesday, Dec. 17, accused of being the fourth suspect in a violent gunpoint robbery at a north Forsyth residence, which left a victim so severely beaten that she had to be taken to a local hospital.
Authorities believe the suspects and their alleged victim lived together in the residence on Quail Trail where the robbery took place, but they are unsure what the relationship between the parties is or what spurred the incident.
Three other suspects, Jose Luis Feuntes-Contreras, 32 and Patricia Garcia, 47, of Forsyth County and Jose Luis Ochoa, 40, of Hall County, were taken into custody on Saturday, Dec. 7, after sheriff’s office investigators performed a search at the residence.
Each of the suspects has been charged with aggravated assault and battery, false imprisonment and armed robbery. All are being held in the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.This incident is under investigation by the sheriff’s office’s major crimes unit.
