Wednesday at approximately 10:30 pm Officers with the Searcy Police Department responded to the 100 block of N. Charles for an armed robbery that had just taken place.
When Officers arrived, they were told by two victims that they were walking from Walgreens back to their apartment when a black male and white male approached them. The white male then allegedly pulled out a revolver and told both victims to “empty their pockets”.
Among the items that were taken from the victims were cell phones. Both victims had tracking apps on their phone. Officers were able to track both phones and a short time later make a traffic stop on a vehicle based off of the direction of travel of the phones matching a vehicle’s direction of travel. When officers approached the vehicle, they could hear the alarms on both of the victim’s phones.
