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.

Fisher said he was called by Robinson to pick up him and Smith on Highway 58.
