CHAFFEE, Mo. (KFVS) - Two people were arrested in connection with a gas station robbery in April.
Brandace A. Seabaugh, 26, of Sikeston, and Jreece J. Johnson, 19, of Sikeston, were charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.
They are being held without bond.
According to Chaffee police, the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are pending.
Police say the Rhodes 101 Convenience Store on State Highway 77 in Chaffee was robbed at gunpoint just before midnight on Monday, April 11.
On Monday, May 9, police asked for help in identifying a woman they called a person of interest in the crime.
Back in April, police were looking for two suspects.
They said what appeared to be a Dodge Charger, white in color, was identified as the getaway vehicle. It has a missing right front wheel/hub cap.
According to police, they could not get license plate information from the video.
It appeared the vehicle left going southbound on State Highway 77.
The first suspect was described as being in his late teens or early 20s, heavyset and 5-feet, 10-inches or 5-feet, 11-inches tall. He was wearing light-colored cargo pants, a Nike hoodie with black and grey camo sleeves and black and white tennis shoes.
The second suspect was described as being in his late teens or early 20s, slender build and 5-feet, 7-inches or 5-feet, 8-inches tall. He was wearing light-colored skinny jeans with holes in front, black-colored hoodie and what appeared to be a white-colored watch.
According to police, two men wearing hoodies with their faces covered entered the store at the east entrance, walked around to the north side of the store near the coolers for a few minutes and then walked to the area near the south side of the store.
Police say the clerk stepped into the back room briefly and when he came out he was confronted by the two men.
They said the two men had a dark-colored pistol and demanded the clerk open the register.
The suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and left the store, running to the south.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Chaffee Police Department at 573-887-6911.
