From MCSO: Minutes after a social media post about a robbery that occurred at Circle K in Hobe Sound earlier this week, tips identifying the suspects began to roll in.

The post featured photos of three males walking into the store in the early morning hours of June 18th.

After the clerk refused to sell one teenager mango flavored e-cigarette cartridges, the trio carried out the robbery.

One of the suspects jumped over the counter and confronted the clerk as he grabbed several e-cigarette cartridges.

Last night, three local teens were identified and charged with the robbery.

17-year old Logan Winfree of Tequesta, 17-year old Hunter Smith of Hobe Sound, and 17-year old Charles Althauser of Stuart, have all been charged with Robbery, which is a felony.
