GEORGETOWN, Del. - Four people have been arrested, after their alleged involvement with a robbery in Sussex County.

Georgetown Police say on August 16th, a 21-year-old man was sitting in his car, in front of the Service General, counting money from a check he had just cashed, when three men walked up to him, took the money, then one showed him a handgun, before all three fled in a black Cadillac. The victim reportedly knew one of the suspects, and told Police where he believed they would be.

When Police arrived at the 1100 building of the Dunbarton Oaks apartment complex, they apparently saw the black Cadillac, and a group of people out front.

One reportedly fled into an apartment, while Police were able to take two others, 19-year-old Yahi Drummond, and 20-year-old Teuntay Drummond, both of Bridgeville, into custody. The suspect who fled, 30-year-old Alonzo Payne of Laurel, along with 24-year-old Tamara Midgette of Georgetown, both eventually came out of the apartment, and were taken into custody.

Police say they questioned Midgette, and she told them she didn't see Payne drop a weapon in the apartment, but when they searched the apartment they say they found a Colt .38 special revolver under the couch in the apartment. When Police again questioned Midgette, she reportedly told them that she did see Payne put something under the couch, and he had also handed her money and asked her to hold on to it.

Payne was charged with 1st degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a fire arm by a person prohibited, tampering with physical evidence, and conspiracy.

Both Drummonds were charged with 1st degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and conspiracy. Teuntay was additionally charged with possession of a firearm by a person prohibited. All three men are being held at Sussex Correctional Institute on bond.

Midgette was charged with hindering prosecution, and was later released.
