CAIRO — By what was later called an extreme stroke of luck, a deputy pulled over a black SUV for a traffic violation when he received a report about a home invasion and armed robbery. Inside the SUV before him sat the suspects and all their loot.
“We got very lucky,” said Lt. Steve Clark of the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Clark, at about 5 p.m. Sunday a juvenile was at home alone on Robert Willis Road. Then, two of the suspects “came over and were sitting with the victim when two other suspects entered the house and started taking things out of the residence,” Clark said. “This appears to all have been premeditated.”
The four suspects, one of which reportedly had a knife, allegedly, took several electronic items, including a Playstation and several cell phones.
All the property was recovered during the traffic stop on 20th Street NE, according to Clark.
Martravione Lajorony Moore, 21; Anthony Tyrese Washington, 18; Quince Byrden Jr, 17; and a juvenile were arrested during the traffic stop.
All the suspects were charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault. More charges may be pending.
