A third suspect has been arrested in connection with the April armed robbery of the Lucky Ducky store in Princeville.
The Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office reported that Isaiah Daiquan Blow, 21, was arrested on Wednesday by Detective L. Shaw with the assistance of the Robersonville Police Department. Blow had been on the run from authorities since May 2, when he was identified by the Sheriff’s Office as a suspect in the case.
Blow was charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony conspiracy of robbery with a dangerous weapon and misdemeanor assault by pointing a gun.
Blow was jailed under a $250,000 bond. The sheriff’s office extended thanks to all who assisted with information that led to Blow’s arrest.
Two other suspects had been arrested in connection with the robbery, which took place on April 30 at the Lucky Ducky on the 100 block of Black Street in Princeville, the sheriff’s office announced on May 2 on its Facebook page.
Shontayvia Nyshae Staton, 20, was arrested and charged with felony conspiracy of robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony accessory after the fact.
Ty’Asia Monae Ward, 19, also was arrested and charged with felony accessory after the fact.
Staton and Ward were jailed at that time in the Edgecombe County Detention Center.
Lt. E.W. Muse of the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Department said that Blow is married to one of the other suspects, but her identity was not revealed.
Based on video footage of the crime, suspects could be seen riding around the business in a black Nissan Altima prior to the holdup, the sheriff’s office said in a posting on Facebook soon after the robbery occurred.
One suspect was seen entering the store, walking around the business and leaving. A second suspect did the same thing, the sheriff’s office said.
A third person appearing to be a man wearing a ski mask, a brown or black hoodie, gray sweatpants and red and black shoes then entered the store, the sheriff’s office said. That suspect brandished a gun, demanded money from the clerk, left the business and got into the vehicle, according to the original press release.
