Two charged for staging robbery of parking garage, taking money
Cedric Jurete Golden and Deambre Brantley. Brantley told police Golden robbed the parking garage where she worked, but police say it was an inside job.
Robbery Unit detectives "have filed warrants against a man and woman after determining that they staged a robbery of a downtown Savannah parking garage in December," police say.

Cedric Jurete Golden, 25, is being sought for false statements and theft by taking. Deambre Brantley, 23, is being sought for the same two crimes and false report of a crime. They listed the same address on the 4000 block of Ogeechee Road at the time of the incident and now are being sought by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police.

Investigators "determined Brantley lied about the reported Dec. 6 robbery of a private parking garage on the 100 block of East Congress Street," police say.

"Brantley told responding Downtown Precinct Patrol officers that she was working at the lot when a male walked up behind her and demanded money from the business. The investigation revealed Cedric Golden was involved in the incident and was known to Brantley."

Detectives filed the charges Thursday after determining the couple had worked together to steal the money and that Brantley had falsely reported the Robbery.

Metro Police Chief Joseph H. “Jack” Lumpkin Sr. has announced that his officers will file charges against those who obviously file erroneous reports and lie to officers, pointing out the abundance of hours and other resources that are invested in cases only to fine they were falsely reported.

Golden has been arrested at least five times by Savannah-Chatham police on charges ranging from burglary to robbery to probation violation.
