LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A tip that came into the Limestone County Sheriff's Office helped investigators put three people behind bars for an armed robbery that happened in Sept. 2015.

September 25, a handgun and cash were taken at gunpoint from the store attendant at the A&D Food Mart on the corner of Copeland Road and East Limestone Road.

Until recently, there were no leads on who the subjects were.

A recent credible tip helped investigators identify Diego Mejia, 27, Andre Brooks, 28, and Deonte Clark, 32, as the subjects responsible for the armed robbery.

Investigators determined that Clark had driven the others to the store, dropped them off and picked them up nearby a few minutes later.

Allegedly Brooks was the one holding the clerk and gunpoint while Mejia took the cash.

Thursday and Friday officers were able to arrest all three of them. They were each charged with first-degree robbery and booked into the Limestone County Jail.

Bond was set at $20,000 each.

Clark has bonded out. Mejia and Brooks remain in jail.
