A third suspect was arrested this past weekend after a string of recent robberies at gaming arcades in Lee County, Florida. According to the sheriff’s office, his name is James Brown.
The Lee County Sheriff said that Brown was charged with an armed robbery. There was a robbery at the Lucky Turtle Arcade.
WINK, a local TV station, said that an armed suspect placed a firearm on the head of an employee there. Jwyanza Chito, who is believed to be from Philadelphia, was also charged for the robbery.
The Violent Crimes Unit did everything they could. Within 12 hours of the robbery, they made an arrest, but they didn’t stop there.
Chito and another man were charged with a holdup at the White Sands Arcade in Cape Coral. Each is charged with robbery with a firearm.
Chito is accused of pulling out a gun and demanding money from an employee.
The two fled from the scene after they got the $2,500 in loot. Police said that the money was stuffed into a pillowcase.
The robbery was not successful
Two men matching the description of Chito and Myers were spotted by a patron in the parking lot of Coral Palace Arcade, located in Cape Coral. An arcade employee was notified by the patron about the suspicious men.
According to the statement from the Cape Coral Police Department, the employee locked the doors and the two suspects left the parking lot.
There were video cameras in the lot. The footage was reviewed by police. Local police used a photo of their car and license plate to track down the suspects. Chito was located by the police at a motel. He was taken into custody as well. The gun used in the crime was seized by the police.
Chito is believed to have been involved in the robbery of Vegas Knights in May.
