MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Three suspects are behind bars after allegedly robbing a Montgomery seafood restaurant Monday morning.

Employees at the Long John Silver's restaurant on Norman Bridge Road were forced into the store cooler around 9:30am while two suspects robbed the business.

A third suspect, who worked at the restaurant, was also charged when police learned that he was the brother of one of the other suspects.

Police say Johnny Davis, 19, of 3974 Dallas Drive and Tavian Jackson, 22, of 4021 Euclid Drive robbed the restaurant and took off in a red pickup truck.

When police pulled the vehicle over at West Patton Avenue the two men were said to be "extremely nervous and sweating".

Investigators ordered the men out of the truck when the driver said he didn't have a driver's license. That's when Jackson attempted to flee the scene. He was captured without incident.

Inside the truck officers found a black duffle bag filled with cash, a silver handgun and black mask.

During an interrogation at police headquarters detectives learned that Johnny Davis' brother Gevonte worked at the Long John Silver's restaurant and believe he helped plan the robbery.

The three men are being held on Robbery 1st Degree charges at the Montgomery County Detention Facility. Each is being held on $75,000 bond.
