One victim was tied to a post inside the pool area the second victim was bound and placed into the trunk of the other victim’s vehicle. The female and all three suspects then drove off with the victim in the trunk.

Upon freeing the first victim from the pool, deputies began searching for the stolen vehicle and the second victim. They eventually found the vehicle in an area of Adams Circle and upon their approach observed the second victim exit the trunk.

As the investigation continued the female juvenile was found at her residence and though interrogation admitted her part in the incident. She was subsequently arrested for robbery first degree. The three African American males were later identified and two have been arrested and charged for robbery first degree as well. The third subject is still at large.
