Fuquay-Varina, N.C. — Three men charged last week in a Durham jewelry store robbery were charged Monday with holding up an Arby's in Fuquay-Varina, officials said.
Denzel Timothy Rasheem Shivers, 19, Vendai Larpist Irick, 22, and Rodney Jerrold Devin Byrd, 20, were each charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of second-degree kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Fuquay-Varina officials said the men robbed the Arby's on North Main Street as it was closing for the night on June 24, forcing an employee into the back of the restaurant to get the night's bank deposit and grabbing the employee's purse and wallet.
That same night, the men allegedly kidnapped an employee of Jared the Galleria of Jewelry on Fayetteville Road near The Streets at Southpoint mall in Durham as she was leaving the store and made her return so that they could rob it.
Cary police have also charged the men in a June 2 robbery of a McDonald's restaurant and a June 17 robbery of a store manager outside a Wells Fargo Bank.
