Garner police made arrests in another of a series of robberies of sweepstakes parlors, charging two men whom Raleigh police had arrested earlier in the week.
Wednesday, detectives accused Darrell Alphonso Jordan, 20, and Jordan Deion Mitchell, 19, of being part of a group that held up the AIA Sweepstakes parlor at 214 Forest Hills Drive on Jan. 13 and fled with about $3,700.
Raleigh police arrested Jordan on Monday and charged him with a Dec. 31 holdup of the Magic Gold parlor at 4020 Capital Boulevard.
They arrested Mitchell when he was leaving a court hearing Tuesday on unrelated charges and charged him in the Magic Gold holdup and one at Paradise Bingo at 2620 S. Saunders St. on Dec. 23.
In addition to robbery with a dangerous weapon, arrest warrants this week have charged conspiracy and have named Kahleel Dashawn Smith, 21, and Tyree Demetrius McMillan, 22.
McMillan was arrested Feb. 11 and Smith on Feb. 12 in the Paradise Bingo case.
The sweepstakes robberies began Dec. 21, when two men held up Treasure Sweepstakes at 3689 New Bern Ave.
The last robbery in the series was Jan. 20 at Good Luck Sweepstakes in Raleigh, and police charged Ephraim D’Carus Smith, 34, in that case when they arrested him on Jan. 22.
It was unclear whether the Smiths were related.
