Chattanooga Police arrested three young men shortly after a holdup at the Dollar General Store at 5934 Highway 58 on Thursday night.
Charged with aggravated robbery and criminal conspiracy were Jassiem Robinson, 18; Todd Terrance Smith, 19, of 302 Tunnel Blvd., and Cartavius Fisher 21. Smith was also charged with possession of marijuana for resale.
Officers were dispatched to the store at 10:15 p.m. Officers were told that two black males, wearing all black and blue surgical-type gloves with one suspect holding a black gun, came in and demanded the clerk to open the registers and the safe.
The suspects then left and got into a blue Chevrolet Impala.
A vehicle fitting this description was seen southbound on Highway 58. Officers stopped the vehicle and the trio was taken into custody. Officers found blue surgical gloves in the vehicle. Over $400 in cash was found under the front passenger seat.
Police said Robinson admitted being in the store with the revolver. He said it was a BB gun and he threw it down in the woods behind the business. He said all three conspired to carry out the robbery.
Fisher said he was called by Robinson to pick up him and Smith on Highway 58.
