Arrest Made in Friday's Henry County Gun Shop Robbery

WFMY reports that two adults and one minor have been arrested in the September 9th robbery of a Henry County gun shop.
Rashawn Bernard Valentine, 20, and a 15-year-old male are charged with one felony count of burglary and eleven counts of larceny of a firearm.

20-year-old Jawayne Maurice Gravely is charged with one felony count of conspiracy to commit burglary and 11 felony counts of conspiracy to commit larceny of a firearm.
On September 9, deputies responded to an alarm at Southern Gun on Virginia Avenue in Bassett. The store had been broken into and several semi-automatic pistols had been stolen.

Unfortunately for the perps, surveillance cameras caught images of two of the suspects during the theft. A Crimestoppers tip also helped lead to the arrests.  According to WMFY, two handguns were recovered, including one from the gun store.
