Authorities arrested two men Thursday suspected of robbing at gunpoint three people during a home invasion this week in Evans.
Finas Aaron Goodwin III, 17, and Scott LaMont Farley Jr., 18, both of Evans, were charged with armed robbery. Farley, who lived in the same Westwood Club apartment complex as the victims, also was charged with two more counts of armed robbery, three counts of possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime and a count of burglary.
Two men in their early 20s and a 19-year-old woman told Columbia County sheriff’s deputies that two men forced their way into their home about 3 p.m. Tuesday on the 200 block of Lariat Circle.
All three were forced to lie on the floor while the robbers took cellphones, an iPad, an X-Box and cash. Then, they ran from the home, according to a sheriff’s office report.
Goodwin and Farley are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center with no bond set.
