Two armed robbers may have thought they’d gotten away with their crimes early Sunday morning, but it would be the victims who would have the last word.
Just before 3 a.m. Sunday, two men robbed three citizens at gunpoint on East Franklin Street. Minutes later, one of the robbers called a victim and demanded more money.
With the help of First Precinct detectives and officers, the victim instructed the robbers to meet him at a specific ATM on East Cary Street. When the robbers arrived, officers captured them both and recovered the stolen items.
Derek C. Brown, 39, and Shajuan D. Crockett, 25, both of Petersburg, have been charged with armed robbery.
