Three arrested for home invasion robbery
Union County Sheriff's deputies have arrested three people in connection with an Indian Trail home invasion on Wednesday.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in reference to a home invasion and armed robbery at 1139 Briarmore Drive in the Brandon Oaks subdivision.
Deputy Sheriff Chris Allen detained one of the suspects not long after the robbery call, according to a statement from the Union County Sheriff's Office.
After a perimeter was established, Sheriff's canines were called in to search the area and crime scene investigators responded to and processed the scene. Deputies found an abandoned vehicle nearby and were able to identify it as belonging to the suspect or suspects. The vehicle was seized as evidence and a search warrant was obtained.
Detectives located the stolen property taken in the home invasion as well as the .22-caliber revolver used in the robbery, in the trunk of the Saturn. Two additional suspects were able to be identified and warrants were obtained for kidnapping and armed robbery, according to the statement.
The three suspects arrested were Keith Spencer Gaines, 19, of 3700 Fincher Road, Indian Trail, Kyle Michael Holt, 18, of 3700 Fincher Road, Indian Trail and Jadarrius Duntavias Williams, 20, of 3605 Fincher Road, Indian Trail.
In addition to being charged with the Wednesday incident, detectives linked Gaines to two separate robbery cases from 2011, which were also in Indian Trail. On July 10, 2011, Gaines is alleged to have robbed a Dominos Pizza delivery driver of $20 and a pizza. On Oct. 25, 2011, detectives allege Gaines committed a similar robbery against a New York Pizza and Pasta delivery driver and stole a cell phone and $25 in that robbery.
Gaines has been charged with armed robbery, second degree kidnapping, and two counts of common law robbery. He has a March 26 court date and was placed under a $60,000 secured bond.
Holt and Williams are charged with armed robbery and second degree kidnapping. Both of them have a March 5 court date and were each placed under a $20,000 secured bond, according to the statement.
