3 men arrested in connection to robbery


Three men have been arrested after a home was broken into on Rockland Road, near Ronceverte, around 11 p.m. Monday.

The homeowner caught the men entering his home through the basement door, police say.

Two of the suspects, Tyler Richmond and Anthony Andrews, both of Lewisburg, used a card to slip the door lock, but were surprised by the homeowner and fled the scene, the Greenbrier Sheriff’s Department said.

When Richmond and Andrews fled, they were picked up by Brandon Harrison, of Renick. The homeowner was able to provide a vehicle description to Greenbrier County emergency dispatchers.

Cpl. W.K. Nester, Cpl. G.R. Workman, and Cpl. C.W. Bennett from the Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 911 call. Nester spotted the vehicle and tried to stop it by activating his emergency lights. The car transporting the three suspects tried to go around Nester’s cruiser but was blocked in, the sheriff’s department said.

 All three men were taken into custody, and transported to the sheriff’s department for interviews. Richmond, Andrews and Harrison admitted to planning the burglary to get medications, and other valuable items, according to the Sheriff’s Department. Richmond, Andrews and Harrison were taken to Southern Regional Jail.

Ronceverte and Lewisburg police also assisted in the arrests.
