Multiple suspects have been arrested and charged for their alleged involvement in a robbery on Aug. 24, according to the Auburn Police Division.
Christopher Deundrea Johnson, 22, and Demetrie Devontay Givens, 21, have both been charged with robbery first degree, burglary first degree, theft of property first degree and receiving stolen property second degree. Johnson and Givens are being held on $133,000 bond at the Lee County Jail.
The third suspect, a 15-year-old, has been charged with robbery first degree, burglary first degree, theft of property first degree and carrying a pistol without a permit. This suspect has been transported to the Lee County Youth Development Center.
Several hours later, a fourth suspect, Trequan Levell Couch, 18, was seen in a vehicle on South College Street. Couch fled and a vehicle pursuit ensued until Couch was apprehended in Montgomery and charged with robbery first degree, burglary first degree, theft of property first degree, receiving stolen property first degree and fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer. Couch is being held on $140,000 bond at the Lee County Jail.
APD said that two Montgomery 16-year-olds who were in the vehicle with Couch helped him flee from law enforcement. The vehicle was determined to be stolen, and one of the juveniles was charged with receiving stolen property first degree. Both 16-year-olds have been released to guardians.
APD responded to a robbery at 1:30 in the early morning of Aug. 24 in the 1100 block of South College Street. Police say a single victim reported being confronted by multiple armed suspects who demanded property. When police arrived, the suspects fled; one was apprehended on the scene while the two others were located in a vehicle.
APD says that the investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
