ST. CHARLES, Mo (KMOV.com) -- Three men, two armed with handguns, were each charged with three counts of robbery Tuesday.
The men allegedly assaulted an individual and stole a backpack, cell phones, and wallets from four people who had agreed to meet with them to allegedly purchase heroin.
A police investigation revealed that at least some of the suspects and victims knew each other and that one of the suspects wanted to retaliate against one of the victims because that victim had left him “stranded” out of town days earlier.
Christopher D. Hunn, 18, Graylen Noldon, 19, and Dirrell Taylor III, 19 were all arrested about 30 minutes after the altercation. All three have been charged but bond amounts haven’t been established.
A handgun and all of the stolen property was recovered. The investigation is continuing and additional charges may be filed.
