Surveillance footage showed two men walk through the door at GameStop on South Telephone Road November 9. And according to the police report, they asked the worker about a PlayStation. Eventually, they took games and a virtual money card to the counter. One of them appeared so relaxed, he stretched at the register.
But as soon as the cash box kicked open, police said he pulled out a pistol and points it at the worker.
The worker called 911. “I just had a gentleman aim a gun at me and demand all of the cash in my register,” he told the dispatcher. “I gave it to him and he left.”
Moore Police quickly responded and set up a perimeter, but the suspects got away.
About an hour later near Purcell, police said they robbed a Long John Silver's at a travel stop in a similar fashion.
But it would all come to an end north of Pauls Valley, where a task force stopped the suspects on I-35.
Jaharie Irving, Camron Roberson, and Tyrone Freeman, Jr. were arrested.
“I believe they were from Texas, just kind of heading south and got greedy after the first one and continued robbing stores,” said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with Moore Police.
In the vehicle, Purcell Police found an air gun pistol, which they said would give the appearance of a real firearm.
They also reportedly found a large amount of marijuana, cash and other evidence.
Police said the suspects admitted to their roles in the crime spree that left the victims pretty shaken up.
“Not going to lie, I was a little bit frozen for a moment,” the GameStop worker told the dispatcher.
The suspects were being held in the Cleveland County Jail.
