LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) -Three teenagers are behind bars charged with a home invasion robbery in Lowndes County.

Javontay Carr, 18, and Rance Maddox, 18, and and Jactavius Wall, 15, were arrested Thursday afternoon on armed robbery charges. A fourth suspect still is being sought.

According to Lowndes County Sheriff's Det. Eli Perrigin, two people armed with a shotgun forced their way into a home on Golding Road in New Hope and took guns, cash and other items from a man and woman.

A third suspect acted as lookout and the fourth drove the getaway car.

Perrigin would not identify which of the suspects played which role.

"We just got some tips and leads and kept tracking them down," Perrigin said Thursday of what led investigators to the trio. "Now we're trying to find the fourth person and locate the stolen items. We haven't recovered any of the guns yet."

A few of the stolen items have been recovered but detectives still are looking for the guns.

Carr is no stranger to law enforcement. He was arrested in January on charges of robbing a pizza delivery man.
