Virginia Beach, Va. – Three teens are sitting behind bars after police say they robbed a Virginia Beach 7-Eleven store at gunpoint on Thursday morning.

Police say they received a call about the robbery at around 3:11 a.m.

Someone told them the 7-Eleven on 500 22nd Street had been robbed.

An officer, who had just gotten off duty, spotted the vehicle believed to be involved going westbound on I-264. He told other officers who then made a traffic stop.

The three teens were all taken into custody and charged with robbery, use of a firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery. Two 18-year-olds from Norfolk, Isaiah Hopkins and Khari Wood, were arrested. A 17-year-old was also charged, but his name has not been released due to his age. He is also from the Norfolk area.

The two adults are now in the Virginia Beach Correctional Facility while the juvenile is in the Virginia Beach Juvenile Detention Center.
