COLUMBIA, TN (WSMV) -

Five people have been arrested in connection with a string of recent convenience store robberies.

Police said some of the suspects in custody were also involved in the armed robbery at a Columbia fireworks stand earlier this month.

Police said three juveniles and two adults were connected to a rash of convenience store robberies in Maury County.

Avondre Jackson, 18, Marquis Scribner, 19 and the three teens were arrested Wednesday morning after police responded to an armed robbery at the Gas-N-Go convenience store at the intersection of Highway 50 and Interstate 65.

All five were charged with the robbery on Wednesday.

Police told The Daily Herald Jackson that one of the teens may face additional charges for an attempted armed robbery at a north Columbia gas station and a Spring Hill Shell station earlier this week.

Police said the juveniles are being held at the Middle Tennessee Juvenile Detention Center and could be tried as adults.
