HIALEAH (CBSMiami) – Three men are behind bars after they allegedly tried to bring home the bacon from a fast-food restaurant robbery in Hialeah.
Korrigan Brown, 20, Nathan Holmes, 21, and Lamel Lattimore, 21, were arrested by Hialeah police after they allegedly committed an armed robbery at the Wendy’s located on 45 East 49th Street on Friday Night. Surveillance cameras caught the crime on tape.
According to police, Brown and Holmes, both armed, walked into the Wendy’s. As Brown went behind the counter and opened up the cash register, Holmes stood by the door, said police.
“Of course everybody’s in fear for their lives….everybody did the right thing by complying,” said Detective Eddie Rodriguez with Hialeah Police.
Police say when Brown was done stashing the cash, the two men rushed out of the restaurant and hopped into a silver 2009 Honda Accord, where Lattimore was in the driver’s seat.
That’s when the 9-1-1 calls started.
A caller told the dispatcher in Spanish “they went to rob the Wendy’s on 49th street.” The dispatcher asked if the suspects had guns. “Yes they had two guns,” the caller said.
Another caller told a dispatcher in Spanish, “I’m following them.” The caller described the scene as police stopped the vehicle on N.W. 103rd Street.
Police pulled the car over and immediately arrested Holmes and Lattimore.
That is when, police said, Brown jumped out of the car and dashed off on foot but was caught soon after.
At some point shots were fired. Police are not confirming who fired but say no one was hurt.
Now police have turned the case over to the FBI.
“They’re going to see if they’re responsible for some of the similar robberies that have occurred throughout Miami-Dade County,” explained Det. Rodriguez.
