Michael Lamar Dias, 36, of the 2500 block of Alabama Avenue and Antwan Jamel Dennard, 20, of the 300 block of Grist Mill Court in Rincon, were arrested after the pickup truck they had used to flee the robbery scene stopped in the yard of a house and they led officers on a foot chase across two blocks.

Charges against Dias include armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and fleeing to elude, among other offenses. Dennard has been charged with armed robbery, hijacking a motor vehicle, and obstruction by fleeing.

Alan C. WestIf you know anything about this crime, you had better think twice before sharing information with the police. If you do, Yusuf Shabazz will hold YOU responsible. After all, the guy in the picture could be Yusuf's son.22 minutes ago
