UPDATE: Two More Teens Arrested In ATM Robbery

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.

Jones and the two teens are accused of robbing a man at the Cash Points ATM on East Tenth St. in Greenville last Saturday.

    Yeah stand behind your big ole gun. If you are so bad then you would fight like a man. Or atleast I think you are a man. I am a woman weighing 120lbs and 5'3 and I would fight no guns here Dar. I am not out to kill someone fighting with my hands makes me a hero.

    To: to Dar @9/4/: Try me. I once took on a rabid fox located on my front porch, killed it. No different that an idiot who thinks they are faster than a speeding bullet. BTW, I have pulled an rifle on someone as well, they got the message. After being burglarized years passed, if I catch you in my home, 6 people WILL escort you out.

    You said you suggest I not make any test runs. Just what are you trying to say, because I don't rob people. I just laugh at these vigilantes that come on thsi blog and try to act like you would hurt someone. As soon as someone walk up to you you would run and hide. I can see you running so fast you have smoke behind you. Running and ducking.

    To: Anonymous @ 8:45pm...Many here could care less if you are scared but I can guarantee you that if I feel that I am in danger, I WILL shoot...center mass..no legs etc. It's amazing what hollow points can do. I suggest that you not make any test runs...not a healthy idea.

    I am not scared of no one who comes on this site talking about their gun, because you people are all talk. You make me laugh, but what would you really do if someone approach? I will tell you what I would do I would give them the money and just pray that I have money left to eat with. Money is not worth my life. Besides if you go to a teller after dark you are asking for it or you are really dumb.
