Three armed robbery suspects wanted for a convenience market hold up Thursday night were taken into custody after running a stop sign.

Police said Tevin Johnson, 21, and 20-year-old Ladarrius Sullivan entered the Kwik Stop Market at 3906 Apache Trail around 8:40 p.m. armed with pistols and with their faces covered.  

A third suspect, a juvenile, stood at the door and acted as a lookout.

One of the gunmen fired a single shot, narrowly missing the store clerk. The men fled the scene after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash and taking a customer's wallet.

A short time later, at 9:45 p.m., an officer in the area of Barclay Square and Apollo drives witnessed a 1995 gold Crown Victoria run a stop sign. The officer began following the car and initiated a stop after the driver ran a second stop sign.

Upon approaching the vehicle police discovered a small quantity of marijuana stems, a large amount of cash, a ski mask and other dark clothing that matched the description of what was worn by the armed robbers.

Johnson and Sullivan are both jailed in lieu of $150,000 bonds. The 16-year-old suspect is being held in juvenile detention.
