Suspects arrested for role in armed robbery

Two Mount Hope men are in custody for allegedly committing armed robbery March 8 at Eddie’s Market in Bradley.  

Emmanuel Green, 26, and Leonard Higginbotham, 19, are both charged with first degree robbery, conspiracy to commit a felony and child neglect with risk of injury, the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The sheriff’s office said that child neglect charge was brought against the men because Green’s young child was in the vehicle at the time of the robbery.

Green was being processed Thursday afternoon by Raleigh County sheriff’s deputies. Higginbotham was arrested by the Mount Hope Police Department.
