Trio arrested in ambush robbery outside Clearwater wine store

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER, FL (WFLA) -

Pinellas County Deputies say they've arrested three men who ambushed a store clerk, outside a wine store.

Monday night, around 11:30, investigators say Deandre Gray, Jacarius Hannah, and Avery Jamal Jones-Neal hid behind parked cars, waiting for the clerk to come out of Pit Stop Discount Wine, 2201 North Hercules Avenue, in unincorporated Clearwater. Deputies say the three men ambushed the clerk, taking his keys, cell phone, and laptop computer.

K-9 units picked up the scent of the three robbers, and tracked them to a nearby IHOP restaurant, where investigators say the men were hiding. All three now face Strong Arm Robbery charges.
