In an unrelated incident, two teenagers could be facing three counts of armed robbery after three people were robbed near Quincy last Saturday night.
On Saturday evening, a Gretna police officer was driving on U.S. Highway 90 when he noticed a robbery in progress at a fruit stand.
As the officer stopped to investigate, the two young men ran from the scene. A customer and a clerk at the stand had been robbed. The customer gave his wallet to the younger male after a “cold, round object” was placed next to his neck by the older male. After the young men fled, the customer ran to his car and used his cell phone to call for help.
At that point, the younger male then struck the clerk in the face with a gun, knocking him to the ground.
The victims identified the culprits as a young black male, between the ages of 12 and 15 years old, and an older male, around 20 years old.
During a search for the suspects, law enforcement officials found the wallet and its contents in the woods near the stand. They also found a homeless man, who said he had been robbed by three black males.
An anonymous source led officers to the suspects. After apprehending and questioning one of the suspects, officers located the gun used in the robbery, a 380-caliber semiautomatic pistol.
Elijah Passmore, 18, and a juvenile were arrested and charged in the robbery. Passmore had been released from jail a month prior to the incident Saturday.
The Gretna officer was assisted by the Quincy Police Department and the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office.
