St. Charles, MO (KSDK) - Three men have been charged with robbing four people at gunpoint who had allegedly met them to purchase heroin.
Lt. David Senter with the St. Charles Police Department says 18-year-old Christopher D. Hunn, 19-year-old Graylen Noldon II, and 19-year-old Dirrell Taylor III have each been charged with three counts of first-degree robbery.
One person was assaulted during the incident, and a backpack, cell phones, and wallets were taken during the robbery.
Lt. Senter says an investigation revealed some of the suspects and victims knew each other, and the robbery was in retaliation against one of the victims for leaving one of the suspects stranded out of town a few days earlier.
All three suspects were taken into custody 30 minutes after the robbery and are held in police custody.
One handgun and all of the stolen property was recovered.
Bond amounts have not yet been set.
Additional charges are possible.
