A routine traffic stop in Peachtree City early this morning turned up more than routine DUI charges.

The suspect, Jonathan Michael DeMartino, 26, of Palm Coast, Fla. had outstanding arrest warrants for armed robbery and false imprisonment, police said. The charges stemmed from a case in St. John's County where DeMartino is accused of robbing two victims for drugs, police said.

Police determined that DeMartino has an "extensive criminal history" and he was reportedly staying at a local hotel in Peachtree City.

DeMartino is currently being held in the Fayette County Jail awaiting extradition to Florida, police said. He was pulled over just after 1 a.m. this morning for a traffic violation at the intersection of Ga. Highway 74 and Paschal Road.
