25-year-old Iysha Merritt, 23-year-old Farraad Rogers-Bolden, and 20-year-old Ronda Atkins-Rogers have formally been charged in connection to the robbery. Police said the three were among the six people caught looting a burned out beauty supply store.
Police say Rogers-Bolden was sentenced to five years probation in 2013 for theft, however the court suspended that sentence. The other two suspects, Atkins-Rogers and Merritt, have no prior records. Both women are facing possible burglary and theft charges.
Shots were fired after officers arrived. There were three other suspects involved in the robbery, but they are juveniles which means their cases are sealed unless they are charged as adults.
