Armed robbery suspects captured

Brookhaven Police Department officers took three males into custody Friday morning as suspects in an armed robbery.

A passerby called 911 just after 8 a.m. to report three individuals in a white car at the intersection of West Minnesota and South Jackson streets, stating that the occupants appeared to be passed out. When police arrived, the three were sitting alert on the side of the road, BPD Shift Supervisor Christian Davis said.

The car had been reported stolen one week ago from a home in the Rogers Circle area, where the owners were victims of an armed robbery, said Detective Sgt. Jonathan Alford.

The three suspects — Tremail Richardson, Letrell Barnes and a 17-year-old minor — were taken into custody, Alford said. The minor was taken to King’s Daughters Medical Center for evaluation, and Richardson and Barnes were taken to Lincoln County Jail.
