Two of the three suspects involved in Friday’s armed robbery of two UPS truck drivers in the back parking lot at the McDonald’s on Hwy. 17 were arrested later that same day, according to police.

Richmond Hill residents Keon Blige, 23, and Justin Oliver, 20, were arrested Friday and charged with two counts of armed robbery.

Richmond Hill Police Department Lt. Mike Albritton, who headed the investigation, said video surveillance from the McDonald’s and from the Knights Inn, where the three men were reportedly staying around the time of the incident, played a big part in establishing their whereabouts. He said he anticipates the arrest of a third suspect, who he believes the identity has been established.

Albritton said the three men took two wallets in the robbery, each containing credit cards and "a combined cash total of $64."

All but the cash was recovered.
