INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD has arrested multiple juveniles in connection to an armed robbery and armed carjacking on Saturday, Feb. 20. 

Around 2:40 p.m. IMPD Southeast District officers responded to an armed robbery of the Family Dollar located at 3522 E. Raymond St.

Officers found the suspect fleeing the area and after a foot pursuit, they were able to take a juvenile male into custody. The juvenile was in possession of a handgun believed to have been used during the robbery. 

Officers and detectives recovered money believed to have been taken during the robbery. 

The juvenile male was arrested for his alleged role in the robbery, possessing a handgun without a license and resisting law enforcement. 

Then, around 6:15 p.m. near Stop 11 Road and Madison Avenue, officers found an occupied vehicle that was taken in a carjacking the day before.

Officers attempted to arrest the suspects, but the four occupants ran from officers. The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, IMPD Southeast District middle shift officers, IMPD SWAT officers, IMPD K-9 officers and Southport officers worked together to quickly arrest all four people without further incident. 

All four suspects were juvenile males. Two of the suspects were in possession of handguns, one of which was previously reported stolen. 

The carjacked vehicle was returned to its owner.

Since the males arrested are all juveniles, their names are not being released.
