Two weeks ago the Post ran surveillance photos of the suspects that committed an armed robbery in the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 27, at the Circle K gas station at 4811 West River Drive, in Plainfield Township.

Last week, the Kent County Sheriff’s Department arrested three male suspects in the robbery and charged them with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Gabriel Taylor 21; Emilio Melton, 19; and Javier Hernandez, 17, have all been arraigned, and their bonds were set at $100,000. All are currently residing in the Kent County jail.

Two of the suspects reportedly entered the store about 4:40 a.m. armed with a gun and masks over their faces, and demanded money from the clerk before fleeing in a getaway car. No shots were fired during the robbery and no one was injured.
