Man charged in home invasion, high-speed chase

Local News

A suspect wanted since last month for a home invasion robbery on Gilbert is now charged with an armed robbery in a convenience store just a few days after that home invasion and the high-speed chase that followed.

Tyrone Davis, 26, was booked into jail Thursday on $1 million bond for the Gilbert robbery and $1 million bond for the store hold up.

On Dec.  2, the S & L Beer Wine and Grocery on Southwest Parkway was held up by two men wearing masks and black hoodies.

One of them pointed a silver pistol at the clerk and told her to get on the floor. She said one of them grabbed her neck and pushed her to the floor. She said they took money from the register, the safe and a drawer. She said they also grabbed swisher sweet cigars and Newport cigarettes.

Police officers said the descriptions and methods were similar to robberies at other locations.

Police got tips that indicated Davis and Dequavious Sanderson were the suspects. Sanderson was also wanted for the Gilbert robbery, in which the armed robbers also wore masks.

On Dec. 7, officers got information on their location and tried to stop a vehicle on Oceola, but both suspects fled on food.

Sanderson was caught and officers found a silver pistol matching the one used in the S&L robbery.

They said Davis got away and was arrested Thursday. 

Also in the car, police said they found a clown mask and a white face mask, 19 packages of swisher sweets, packages of Newport cigarettes, hoodies and a bank bag from the store.
