Four arrested, one still loose after armed robbery
A home invasion and armed robbery in Russellville Feb. 24 has resulted in four arrests with one man still being looked for by police, according to officials.
The incident took place at a residence on Vincent Drive, according to Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett.
“We’ve got four of the people involved in custody right now and we are still looking for the fifth,” Hargett said.
Those arrested include: Savana Sage, 18, Clay Avenue, Russellville; Taylor White, 18, Lauderdale 7, Florence; Preston Lee Behel 20, Meadow Grove Lane, Florence; and Cindy Behel, 33, Lauderdale 8, Waterloo.
Those arrested have been charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree theft of property and first-degree burglary, according to Hargett.
Warrants have been issued for Bobby Wayne Behel, 44, North Crown Street, Florence, for the same charges. He is the husband and father of two of those already apprehended, according to officials.
Hargett said one of the women involved knew one of the residents. The group arrived at the residence and dropped two of the males off nearby, according to Hargett. The two remaining in the car took a male from the residence and drove around before leaving him outside of the car. That is when all involved returned to the home and entered.
The mother of the boy who was picked up was in the residence and the group pulled a weapon and robbed the home, according to officials.
The homeowner was not injured.
Sage, White, Preston Behel and Cindy Behel are being held in Franklin County Jail on bail of $100,000 each, according to officials.
Bobby Wayne Behel is still being searched for and anyone knowing his location is asked to call the Russellville police at 256-332-2230 or Shoals Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685.
