LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Last week, three men were arrested on burglary charges stemming from an armed robbery that happened last year.

A recent credible tip helped Limestone County Sheriff's investigators solve an armed robbery that occurred in East Limestone last fall.

Police say Diego Mejia, 27, Andre Brooks, 28, and Deonte Clark, 32, are all charged with robbery in the 1st degree and booked into the Limestone County Jail last week.

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

The investigation determined that Clark had driven the Mejia and Brooks to the store, dropped them off, and picked them up nearby a few minutes later.

Deputies say allegedly, Brooks was the gunman, holding the clerk at gunpoint while Mejia took the cash.

Their bond was set at $20,000 each. Deonte Clark bonded out; the other two suspects remain in jail.
