According to a LPD press release, Anthony “Tony” Lee Floyd, 18, Travious Shimon Jennings, 20, and Jerry Dean West, 22, are wanted for armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of certain crimes.
The three suspects were previously not identified after allegedly entering a house at the 300 block of Preakness Drive on Nov. 9. The three suspects brandished their guns and demanded valuables from the two victims, and then fled the scene, according to the press release.
