Brownsburg Police arrested three suspects early Wednesday morning in the armed robbery of a Brownsburg fast food restaurant.
Brownsburg Police were contacted shortly after midnight by IMPD and the FBI’s Safe Street Task Force in regards to three males who were believed to be in Brownsburg and also suspected of committing several robberies in Indianapolis.
Around 12:30 a.m., a customer at the Steak and Shake on Maplehurst Drive texted a Brownsburg Police officer that the business was being robbed.
Sgt. April Hyde of the Brownsburg Police said that two of the men entered the restaurant through a rear door, showed weapons, and took approximately $700 from the cash register as well as the wallet of an employee.
Brownsburg, IMPD and the FBI coordinated their pursuit, and located the car matching a witness description. The suspect car drove west on Interstate 74 to Pittsboro, then continued into a rural area of Hendricks County along 500 North, which is south of Pittsboro.
Where Hendricks County 50 West T’s into 500 North, the car slid off the road and three men jumped out and were taken into custody – one by a police K-9 officer.
Police arrested 21-year-old Darian Dowell, 21-year-old Fletcher Greer and 20-year-old Armand Fuller.
All three have been preliminarily charged with robbery, criminal confinement, and pointing a firearm.
Nobody was injured in the restaurant.
IMPD said the three men are believed to be responsible for a dozen other robberies in Marion County, dating back to November 2013.
