Two more teens have been arrested for the armed robbery of a man using an ATM in Greenville last Saturday.
Two fourteen year old students were arrested at J.H. Rose High School on Thursday, according to Greenville Police Captain Ted Sauls. Because of their age, the names of the suspects are not being released.
Captain Sauls says officers served secure custody orders on the two teens at school. A secure custody order is the equivalent of an arrest warrant for juveniles. The teens were then taken for a hearing at the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Sauls said it was not clear whether they were admitted to Pitt Regional Juvenile Detention Center or released.
On Wedneday, 16-year-old Taquon Jones was arrested at J.H. Rose. He appears to be wearing the collared shirt required by the school dress code in his mug shot.
