4 teens charged with robbing 2 Fayette County H.S. students on campus

Four students have been arrested and charged with preying on other students in the last couple of weeks at Fayette County High School in Fayetteville.

The four male students snatched a purse and a cellphone from two other students on the FCHS campus, police said. Charges include robbery, theft and gang activity.

Arrested Sept. 6 were the following:

Trenton Headley, 17, student at FCHS, from Fayetteville.

Tyrek Armstrong, 17, Open Campus, from Fayetteville.

Michael Powell, 17, Open Campus, from Fayetteville.

Juvenile, 16, FCHS, from Fayetteville.

Open Campus is an alternative school located on the old Fayette County High School campus at 205 LaFayette Avenue next door to the new high school. It provides online and individualized course instruction.

Here’s the news release:

On Thursday, Sept. 6, 2012, the Fayetteville Police Department, with the help of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, executed four search and arrest warrants. Two of the search warrants were in the City of Fayetteville and two were in Fayette County.

The warrants stemmed from an investigation conducted by the Fayetteville Police Department into the theft of a purse and a robbery by sudden snatching (cell phone).

Both events occurred late August and early September at the Fayette County High School. The victims were students at Fayette County High School.

Two of the persons arrested were also Fayette County High School students. The other two were students at Open Campus.

All four are being charged with robbery by snatching, theft by taking, and gang activity. Further charges may be pending. Property and evidence was seized from three of the four search warrants.
