Two men are facing charges for an armed robbery in Cole County.

19-year-old D’Nozea Spain of Columbia … and 20-year-old Jerome Jones of Jefferson City … are charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.  A juvenile was also taken into custody. 

The incident happened on Friday on Jefferson City’s west end when the trio went to the victim’s home to steal 17-hundred dollars in cash.  The victim told police one of the suspects threatened to blow his head off if he didn’t turn over the money.  The men left with the money and a semi-automatic rifle.

Spain and Jones were later located at an apartment complex and taken into custody.  At the time of their arrest, they were in possession of a stolen car.
