UPDATE: Three Durham teens arrested for August 12 armed robbery at Mebane Jersey Mike’s

Mebane police have arrested three Durham teenagers for the armed robbery of Jersey Mike’s, 102 Millstead Drive, just off NC 119 in Mebane, that took place back on August 12.

Two black males – both armed with what police believe were AR pistols –  entered the store shortly before 9:00 that night, took money from the cash drawer, and fled in what turned out to be a stolen car.

A police officer on the way to the scene saw the suspicious car and followed into the area of Quaker Creek Drive in the Fieldstone Apartment complex off South Third Street.

Officers chased the suspects (by then identified as three black males) through the complex but lost them in the area near Briarwood Drive.
