WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Five people involved with the armed robbery of the Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurant on June 30 were arraigned Thursday and charged with five felonies apiece.
The defendants include one of the restaurants cooks. They face up to 25 years in state prison, according to a press release from the Westchester District Attorney's office.
Anthony Bush, 24, of White Plains, Marcus Beechum, 22, of White Plains, Timothy Crawford, 26, of White Plains, Ricardo St. Louis, 25, of Mount Vernon, and Lannay Wiggins, 25 of White Plains were each charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, one count of second-degree robbery, one count of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of third-degree possession of stolen property.
St. Louis faces an additional felony charge -- one count of second-degree assault -- for allegedly injuring a police officer and preventing him from doing his job.
Shortly after midnight on June 30, Bush, Beechum, and St. Louis allegedly walked into the Five Guys on Main Street with a loaded .44 caliber gun, demanded cash and left with $7,7000 in stolen money. Within an hour police found all five suspects in a Mitchell Place apartment that Wiggins shared with her boyfriend Crawford, who was a Five Guys cook at the time of the robbery.
Police recovered some of the money and the gun.
The defendants next court appearance will be August 4.
