RICHLAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Richland police say one person has been arrested and two more are wanted in an armed robbery at Wendy's last week.

Police say the manager of the restaurant on Highway 49 was robbed at gunpoint Sept. 18.

After reviewing surveillance video, detectives determined one of the employees was possibly involved. Police believe Jeremiah Allen, 26, of Florence let his brother, Joshua Allen, 25, into the building to wait to rob the manager after the rest of the employees left.

Jeremiah Allen has been arrested and charged with armed robbery. He's being held on $250,000 bond.

Warrants have been issued for Joshua Allen, of Jackson, and Lesli White, 23, of Collins.

Joshua Allen is believed to be armed and dangerous and driving a gold Ford Focus with Texas tags.

Detectives believe the brothers are linked to similar robberies in the Covington County area.

Anyone with information on these crimes or the location of the suspects is asked to call Lt. Aaron Hirschfield at 601-420-1570.
