Bedford police have arrested five people in a robbery and home invasion that happened more than two years ago.
At 4 a.m. March 6, 2011, a resident in the 1000 block of Gum Street in Bedford contacted police to report a robbery, according to a release from the Bedford Police Department on Friday.
The release said police were told that several people had entered a residence by force and held the occupants at gunpoint while accomplices ransacked the home and looked for money.
The suspects left with an undisclosed amount of money and were reported to get in a vehicle and travel north on Peaks Street, the release said.
One resident was injured in the incident and treated at Bedford Memorial Hospital and released.
According to the news release, after a “lengthy and determined” investigation by Bedford police, five people have now been arrested.
Jacqueline Michelle Carson, 21, of Bedford County; Jeffrey Lamar Brown, 23, of Roanoke; Tyler Ashton Mackenzie, 23, of Roanoke; and Cantrell Vicsean Griffin, 21, of Roanoke were all charged with breaking and entering with intent to rape, rob or murder; robbery; use of a firearm in a felony; and wearing a mask in public.
Audrey Paige Bennett, 23, of Bedford County was charged with robbery and wearing a mask in public.
The release said Bennett has made a guilty plea, Mackenzie and Brown are awaiting a trial date, and all of them are currently incarcerated.
