St. Louis police arrested Lennard Brown, 20, early yesterday morning after one of its off-duty officers saw media coverage of Monday's crime spree and identified the suspects caught on a surveillance camera. Police say that that they also recovered property stolen from the Granite City home while arresting Brown. Police are now looking for Trevin Johnson, 19; Durell Dorn, 24; and Walter Nickels, 28. All three men are to be considered armed and dangerous.
The men are believed to be the suspects who rammed into a car in St. Louis County on Monday morning and then robbed the driver at gunpoint when he got out to inspect damage to his vehicle. Several minutes later the suspects -- driving a black Hyundai Sonata -- arrived at a home in Granite City and kicked open a door. Surveillance footage from the home show the men walking off with electronics and fleeing police as Madison County sheriff deputies arrived on the scene.
