ORLANDO, FL - A third suspect in November's armed robbery of Tampa's International Diamond Center was arrested Thursday afternoon, after leading authorities on a chase in Orange County.

ATF agents arrested Bryan Bobby Beaudoin after a chase in the area of Interstate 4 and Kirkman Road, according to WESH TV.

Investigators say on November 22, Beaudoin, Clyde Bernard Johnson II and Anthony Mina Wahba robbed the International Diamond Center located at 10330 Dale Mabry Highway.

Wahba used a hammer to shatter glass cases in the store so the men could steal high-priced watches, diamonds and jewelry.

The suspects also ordered people inside the store to lay on the ground. Johnson then stole some of the victim's wallets and fired a gun into the floor near a counter before they left the store, according to an arrest affidavit.

Johnson and Wahba were arrested in the Orlando area on Dec. 4, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
