A man charged in the armed robbery of an armored truck in Oakwood on Wednesday, who along with two other suspects led police on a wild chase across county lines, now faces an additional charge after providing a fake name.

Cpl. Danny Sridej with the Oakwood Police Department said 25-year-old Montez Antwan Walker originally told police he was 28-year-old Calvin Antonio Westbrook.

In addition to the charges stemming from the robbery and the chase, Walker is now charged with providing false information.

Walker, along with Antonio Gore, 19, and Terry Rivers, 19, allegedly robbed an armored truck employee Wednesday morning in the parking lot of the Walmart in Oakwood on Mundy Mill Road.

All three men are from the Atlanta area and could be connected to another armored truck robbery in East Point at the end of December, authorities said.

Police said the men then jumped in their silver SUV and led police on a high-speed chase into Gwinnett County before crashing into a creek near Woodward Mill Road.

After a search of the area with dozens of police and K-9 units, the three men were tracked down and arrested.

Authorities suspected a fourth person was involved, but investigators are unsure that person, who they believed to be a woman, exists.
