Pinellas County Deputies have apprehended three suspects in connection with an overnight Robbery in an unincorporated section of Clearwater.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Monday, 2/18/13 the three suspects (Deandre Gray, Jacarius Hannah and Avery Jamal Jones-Neal) hid behind parked cars in the parking lot of Pit Stop Discount Wine, located at 2201 North Hercules Avenue in Clearwater.  Once the clerk came outside of the business, all three suspects ambushed him, taking his keys, cellular phone, and laptop computer.

After taking the victim’s belongings, the suspects fled the area on foot.

Deputies arrived on scene a short time later and began to set a perimeter around the immediate area.  K-9 Units tracked the suspect’s scent to a nearby neighborhood.  Further investigation led deputies to all three suspects hiding at a local restaurant (IHOP).

All three were charged with Strong Arm Robbery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail.
