BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Blytheville police arrested three people in connection to a robbery and prostitution case.

They are also searching for the fourth suspect.

According to a police report, Cordell Dotstry, 22, went to the Blytheville Police Department to report a robbery on May 26.

Dotstry said that Tyra Thompson, 19, Ashley Farmer, 21 and Shukara Daniels, 19, held him at gunpoint and robbed him.

Dotstry said that Thompson had a small black semi-automatic handgun, Daniels had an unknown pistol and Farmer had a Mac 9.

He said they stole a black cell phone, $240 in cash and a Kel-Tec pistol and then ran out the door.

Dotstry said he saw them get into a silver Dodge Charger with primer spots.

Warrants were issued for Thompson, Farmer and Daniels for aggravated robbery.

On May 31, Thompson was arrested and questioned by police.

She said that she did not have anything to do with the robbery.

During questioning, she said that Dotstry talked to Daniels and made an agreement that he would pay Daniels and Farmer for sex.

Thompson admitted she took Farmer over to Daniels' house but Daniels and Dotstry were in the bedroom when they arrived.

Thompson said she and Farmer stole marijuana that belonged to Dotstry and then left.

Thompson said that Dotstry made up the story because he did not want anyone to know he paid for sex.

Detectives also questioned Daniels at the Mississippi County Sheriff’s Office, where she was being held on unrelated charges.

She admitted to having sex with Dotstry for money.

She said Dotstry contacted her and said he wanted to pay her for sex and that he wanted Farmer to come too.

She said she contacted Farmer, telling her that Dotstry wanted to pay them $300 a piece for sex. Farmer agreed and Daniels told Farmer that she would have Thompson drop her off.

Daniels said that Dotstry walked to her house and he had sex with her, paid her $300 and she left the room.

When Daniels left the room, Farmer entered and had sex with Dotstry.

Daniels said that before Farmer was paid, Thompson went into the room and pulled a gun on him and took his money. She said Dotstry said, “I don’t want any problems. I’ll give you everything.”

Daniels that’s when Thompson forced Dotstry out of the house at gun point and into her vehicle.

Thompson then drove Dotstry to his house and stole another $190 and a gun.

Daniels and Thompson were charged with aggravated robbery and theft. Daniels was also charged with prostitution.

Both were arraigned in Blytheville District Court on Thursday.

Dotstry was charged with sexual solicitation and plead not guilty. His court date was set for trial on July 6.

Blytheville police have an active warrant out for Farmer for aggravated robbery, theft of property, theft of a firearm, and prostitution.
