HUNTINGTON — The following information was provided by criminal complaints filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court:
ROBBERY: Three people were arrested in the 1700 block of Buffington Avenue on Thursday night after the Huntington Police Department executed a search warrant at a residence in connection with two armed robberies that occurred earlier in January.
Tyree Ky-ron Hendricks, 18, Peyton Black, 18, and Jackie Lee McComas III, 19, were jailed at 11 p.m. Thursday.
Hendricks was charged with robbery in the first degree and battery. According to the complaint, the male victim told police Hendricks was a passenger in his car when he became angry with how the victim was driving around 3 a.m. Jan. 1 in the 1500 block of 4th Avenue. Hendricks allegedly began punching the victim and “beating him brutally,” then stole the victim’s wallet and pulled a handgun on him and demanded his cellphone.
Black was charged with first-degree robbery. According to the complaint, the male victim told police he picked up Black around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1800 block of 7th Avenue. While the two were talking in the car, the vehicle was allegedly approached by two unidentified male suspects who demanded everything he had and pointed a firearm at the victim. Black allegedly opened the victim’s glove compartment and took the victim’s firearm before saying,
“I’m sorry,” and exiting the vehicle, fleeing the area with the two unidentified suspects.
McComas was charged with delivery of a controlled substance. While police were executing the search warrant Thursday for the residence in search of the previous two suspects, a vehicle was allegedly observed leaving the location and was stopped. Police located McComas, Black and Hendricks in the vehicle and all suspects were detained.
The search warrant executed on the home yielded a large container with individual baggies of marijuana in undisclosed quantities.
