AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Four people from Montgomery have been arrested in connection to a home invasion and armed robbery that took place overnight near the Auburn University’s campus.
Officers were called to the 1100 block of S. College St. at approximately 1:30 a.m. after a single victim reported being approached at gunpoint by several people who then entered their home and stole property.
When officers arrived, the suspects fled the scene. One was arrested on the scene and two others were located driving away from the scene. Those three suspects were identified as Christopher Deundrea Johnson, 22, Demetrie Devontay Givens, 21, and a 15-year-old juvenile.
Hours later, Trequan Levell Couch, 18, was seen driving a vehicle along S. College St. When officers tried to stop the vehicle, he led police on a high-speed chase all the way to Montgomery.
Two 16-year-olds were in the vehicle with Couch throughout the police chase. It was determined that both traveled to Auburn to help Couch escape law enforcement in a stolen vehicle. One of those juveniles was charged with receiving stolen property.
Johnson was charged with robbery, burglary, theft of property and receiving stolen property.
Givens was charged with robbery, burglary, theft of property and receiving stolen property.
Couch was charged with robbery, burglary, theft of property, receiving stolen property and fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer.
