YELLVILLE, AR - Three accused gas station robbers are being held at the Marion County Jail.

The heist happened around 1 a.m. today at a White Oak gas station/convenience store.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) says a man walked into the store, pointed a gun at the cashier and demanded money. He left the store with cash and cigarettes, got into a vehicle and drove away.

Soon after, officers had a description of the vehicle and were on the lookout for it when it passed by an officer that had pulled over another different vehicle. When the driver saw the officer, he sped off.

The officer was soon in pursuit, along with a second officer. When the vehicle finally pulled over, deputies looked inside and found most of the cash and merchandise from the robbery.

The three suspects are identified as; Teal Hampton and David Wilson, both 19, of Harrison, along with Houston Dunsing, 21, of Alpena.

They are all charged with aggravated armed robbery and theft of property and are being held on $100,000 bond each.
