Pair Arrested in Gas Station Robberies


Two men are in federal custody accused of three gas station robberies in the Evansville area. 

Police said two Evansville gas stations were robbed by a man with a rifle or shotgun late Thursday night and early Friday morning.

And then another station was robbed in Elberfeld Friday afternoon.

In a release, Evansville Police Sgt. Nick Winsett said the combined efforts of multiple law enforcement agencies – including the FBI -- led to the arrests of 23-year-old Davonti Jones-Robinson and 26-year-old Trinity Ramon Taylor.

Robinson and Taylor face federal charges so they were lodged in a federal facility in Henderson.

No one was injured in the hold-ups.
