Newport News, Va. – Police have made three arrests in a business robbery that happened back in October.

On December 23, 2013, police arrested 19-year-old Devonta Randall Lewis of Newport News. He is charged with Use of a Firearm in Commission of a Felony; and Conspiracy to Commit Felony.

On December 17, 2013, police arrested 20-year-old Khadijah Sade Mitchell who was in custody of the Newport News City Jail for charges related to a separate incident. She is charged for her participation in the same robbery as Lewis; Mitchell is charged with Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony; and Conspiracy to Commit Felony.

Police also arrested a 17-year-old in connection to the robbery.

It happened on October 13, 2013 at 8:44 p.m. Police responded to the Kangaroo Gas Station located at 683 J. Clyde Morris Blvd. in reference to a business robbery.

The two victims, who are store clerks, indicated two masked males entered the store, one armed with a long rifle or shotgun and robbed the business.

Police say the suspects forced the clerks to open the register then told them to get down on the floor. The suspects took cash and fled the business eastbound toward J. Clyde Morris Blvd. The suspects were inside the business less than two minutes, according to police. A third suspect stayed outside the business during the robbery.
