KENNETT, MO (KFVS) -

Three people were arrested after a 93-year-old Kennett man was robbed.

Sidney Sims, 17, Hollie Sims, 25, and Latriece McNeely, 34, face robbery charges.

Kennett police say Orville Abmeyer, 93, of Kennett was sitting outside in his swing on North Walnut Street when two females approached him.

Abmeyer told police one of the women grabbed him, jerked his wallet from the top pocket of his coveralls, and took $230.

He says one of the suspects sat on him.

Abmeyer told officers that both women got into a vehicle that was sitting a short distance from his home. He told police the vehicle was driving by a male.

The three suspects were found at a home in Kennett and taken to the Dunklin County Justice Center.

Only $8 of the stolen money was recovered. Abmeyer says he had planned to buy a new pair of overalls with that money in his wallet.
