3 Arrested for Alleged Robbery at Gunpoint in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD -- Police have arrested three people in connection to an armed robbery last week in St. Cloud.
The Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force says the incident happened early Friday morning in the 40 block of 3rd Avenue NE in St. Cloud.
The male victim told authorities he had been with 23-year-old Amanda Schrupp and 49-year-old Chyvonne Lewis, both of St. Cloud, using drugs. The three of them went to an ATM where the victim withdrew a large sum of cash.
When they returned, Lewis let 23-year-old Orlando Johnson of Sartell into the building. Johnson allegedly punched the victim in the face and demanded money while holding a gun in his mouth.
Schrupp allegedly helped in the robbery by telling Johnson where the money was and the three left with cash and electronics.
Investigators later found Schrupp driving the vehicle described as being involved in the robbery. During the arrest, police found Schrupp had 12 rocks of crack cocaine with her and she was taken to Benton County Jail for possession of controlled substances, aiding and abetting 1st degree aggravated robbery, and aiding and abetting 1st degree burglary.
On Saturday, St. Cloud police found and arrested Lewis. She was taken to Benton County Jail for aiding and abetting 1st degree aggravated robbery.
On Tuesday, investigators saw Johnson getting into a car in the 800 block of 8th Avenue SE in St. Cloud. Johnson fled on foot during a subsequent traffic stop and was eventually caught and arrested. Johnson was found to have items of evidence linking him to the robbery and was taken to Stearns County Jail for 1st degree aggravated robbery, 1st degree burglary, felon in possession of a firearm and controlled substance crimes.
