Two Charleston, Mo. men are behind bars after being arrested in connection to an armed robbery.

On September 30 at about 9:45 p.m., Charleston police were notified of an armed robbery at the Family Dollar located at 601 South Main Street in Charleston.

The initial call said that a male suspect walked in the store and displayed a handgun, and cash was reportedly stolen.

The suspects, along with a vehicle description were given to patrol officers.  At about 10:40 p.m., an officer allegedly saw the suspected vehicle on Cleveland Street.

The driver failed to yield and the officer pursued the vehicle out of the city limits.

The vehicle came to rest in a bean field on County Road 401 just south of the intersection with US 62.  With the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a male and female were taken into custody and returned to town.

A large portion of the money stolen was recovered. Both suspects were placed in the Mississippi County Jail. On October 2, another suspect was arrested at a home on South Virginia Street. 

Curtis Farmer, 36 of Charleston, is currently being held on a warrant charging him with robbery armed criminal action, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and property damage.
