JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro Police have released more details on Tuesday night's attempted robberies of two Jonesboro gas stations.

According to Jonesboro Police, Monterrio Lenoir, Adore Haskins, and Diquan Nellon were arrested Tuesday night for the attempted robbery of two Jonesboro gas stations.

JPD says Haskins walked into the Jordan's Quick Shop on Southwest Drive to scope the place out, when she return to the car and told Lenoir the place was empty. By the time the two tried to go back into the store, the clerk had already locked the door.

Police say Lenoir hit the glass with the gun and pointed it at the clerk. Lenoir then fled the scene after the clerk refused to open the door.

A short time later, police say the three then went to the Double B's Exxon station on Harrisburg Road. Nellon and Lenoir then entered the store and pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded she empty the registers.

The clerk emptied the registers and Nellon and Lenoir then left the station.

A witness followed the three from Harrisburg Road and police pulled the suspects over in the Holiday Inn parking lot.

No injuries were reported and police were able to recover all the stolen items.

According to Jonesboro police, both Haskins and Lenoir gave full confessions to police.

Police say the gun used in the attempted robberies was a pellet gun.

All three appeared before a Craighead County Judge Wednesday. The judge set Nellon's bond at $25,000, Lenoir's bond was set at $50,000, and Haskins bond was set at $25,000.

Diquan Nellon is a juvenile, but police are charging him as an adult.
