Valdosta - Valdosta police arrested three teens for armed robbery and they're still searching for two more suspects.

18 year-old Alex Johnson, a 15-year old, and a 16 year-old were arrested Sunday and charged with armed robbery.

Police say the teens and two other unknown men approached 30 year-old Justin Hayes and his 13 year-old step-daughter on Marion Street after they left the Dollar General.

They pulled two guns and demanded Hayes give them his bag.

They then ran off but were caught just moments later thanks to an anonymous tip from a caller who saw the suspects get into a car and drive off.  "Sgt. Pickett conducted a traffic stop on that vehicle and in the course of doing that traffic stop we saw in plain view the property that was taken from the victims," says Commander Brian Childress at the Valdosta Police Department.

A hand gun was also recovered from the car.

Police say they are now searching for the two other suspects and hope to make the arrests soon.
