Three suspects are in custody after a home invasion late Tuesday in the 400 block of Stevens Creek Road, one of two such incidents reported in Richmond County.


According to a sheriff’s ofice news release, those arrested were:

• Harrison Grant Lee, 20, 900 block of Woody Hill Circle, Evans; charged with armed robbery, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm during a crime and possession by a convicted felon

• Dy’shon Vadolle Taylor, 19, 5300 block of Wind Mill Parkway, Evans; charged with armed robbery, burglary, and possession of a firearm during a crime

• Michael Vertron Smith, 24, 200 block of Lariat Court, Evans; charged with armed robbery and burglary

Police said the victims reported that three armed men entered their apartment and took money, cellphones and jewelry.

Deputies also searched Wednesday for two white men in connection with a Roberson Road home invasion that also took place about midnight.

In that incident, sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said, the armed men, dressed in camouflage jumpsuits and ski masks, kicked in the door and demanded money and pills from the homeowner and threatened to shoot him.

A small child was asleep in the home at the time of the incident but was not threatened.

The bandits fled with prescription pills.
