Four individuals, including three teenagers, on the Mississippi Gulf Coast have been apprehended for their roles in an armed robbery at a local apartment complex.

On Sunday, January 28 officers with the Gulfport Police Department responded to a residence at Emerald Pines Apartments about a burglary in progress.

As officers arrived, a suspect, later identified as Kendarious Omowala Rodgers, 20, attempted to flee the scene, but was detained. Three other suspects, identified as Miyun Lamontae Ashley, 16, Tyrick Rshuwn Presley, 19, and Santavious Danez Walker, 18, escaped out the rear window of the apartment.

After a short foot pursuit, Ashley was apprehended, but Presley and Walker had gotten away from law enforcement. Multiple firearms and narcotics were seized at the scene.

Both Ashley and Rogers face one count of armed robbery and one count of burglary of a residence apiece. The duo is housed at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center to be held in lieu of their $200,000 bonds.

On Monday, a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force located the two missing teenagers in Meridian. They were arrested and expedited back to the Coast.

Walker and Presley face charges for one count of armed robbery, one count of burglary of a residence, two counts of trafficking fentanyl and MDMA, and one count of possession of marijuana.

Sgt. Jason Ducré says mugshots are not available for the two at this time.
