Three people arrested in Athens robbery case

Posted: Updated:

Three people including a man we told you about last week are now behind bars after an armed robbery this weekend.  

Police say one of those arrested, Sontonique McClain, is the suspect in an Athens armed robbery last Monday at the Family Dollar Store on Decatur Pike.  He's charged with aggravated robbery.  

Athens police say McClain, LaPorshece McClain and Julius Edwards robbed the Riceville Dollar General on Saturday.

They were caught shortly afterward when police spotted the suspects' vehicle.  The trio stopped at the Hardees on South White Street and were arrested.  A handgun, cash and other items were found.  

LaPorshece McClain and Edwards are charged with criminal responsibility for aggravated robbery.
