TOP STORY >> Arrest made in robberies

Two of three suspects in the robbery and killing of a convenience-store clerk in North Little Rock last Saturday were arrested Friday — one in Jacksonville and the other in Texarkana.

Jacksonville Police Chief Gary Sipes said his department has been able to connect Davion Howard, 19, who was arrested in Texarkana to a robbery that occurred in Jacksonville later the same evening when the North Little Rock clerk was shot.

Jacobi Robinson, 20, of 1201 South Road, Apt. D, in Jacksonville was arrested in connection with the shooting.

Sipes said his department would be interviewing Robinson soon to determine what his role was in the Jacksonville robbery.

A third suspect, 20-year-old Maclin Rogers of Jacksonville, remains at large.

The suspects face capital murder and multiple counts of aggravated robbery.
