— Raleigh police arrested two men Thursday in connection with a series of armed robberies earlier this month.

Warrants allege that Tyquon Devoeta Meggett, 18, of 2807 Marsh St., and Aaron Emile McArthur, 21, of 4308 Presley Court, conspired with a third man, Joshua McNeil, to rob three men at gunpoint on April 10. 

It wasn't clear whether McNeil had also been arrested.

Arrest warrants state that Meggett and McArthur made off with an iPhone, a wallet, two Blackberry Curves, a credit card and $7 cash after the robberies. 

Meggett was charged with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. He was being held Saturday in the Wake County jail under a $100,000 bond.

McArthur was charged in connection with another armed robbery at the Kangaroo Express at 4330 Louisburg Road. 

Warrants state that McArthur threatened the clerk with a semi-automatic pistol, not the same gun used in the other robberies, and stole $50 and multiple packs of cigarettes from the store.

He was charged with four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery and one count of marijuana possession with intent to sell or deliver.

He was being held in the Wake County jail Saturday under a $250,000 bond.

    I am entirely in favor of three (or two) strikes and you are out. But my concept of "out" is not a fifty year retirement in the hoosegow. My concept is a somewhat more economical dispatch of justice.

    I'll agree with where were the parents while these young people were growing up?

    Lock them up with the rest of the criminals and keep them there. The problem is the system will release them shortly to prey on society again.

    Nogade was probably referring to their intelligence as kid like. I look at many of the people being arrested these days and would say if you would cut your hair, not get tattoos all over your face and dress a little better, you might get a job. But that would not make you cool with the bits so just keep getting arrested. And the last comment is for ask races just so Al and the other reverends can't say I am being mean to a particular group....but if the shoe fits.

    18 and 21 years old, guess they had nothing better to do and too scared to join the military. Don't parents keep up with their kids anymore? No wonder stuff like this happens all the time. That's some fine kids to be proud of right there!! Yep they'll be added to the list of Wake Country arrests, that list just keeps growing every day, figures huh?!
