Police say they have made an arrest in an armed robbery that happened at a cemetery near Eisenhower Parkway in Macon last Saturday night.  

According to the Macon Police news release, Brandon Moore, 22, has been charged with armed robbery in the case.

The victim told police he was visiting a friend at the Riverwalk Apartments on Riverside Drive when he was asked for a ride by a man and a woman. He agreed and began driving them across town.
