A 19-year-old Warrensburg man and a 15-year-old juvenile were arrested on Wednesday following an armed robbery in Sedalia.
According to Sedalia Police, nearly $32,000 worth of Apple products were stolen at gunpoint from the Sprint Store on W. Broadway Blvd. GPS tracking capabilities on the devices led authorities to the suspects, who were apprehended at a convenience store in Knob Noster.
Police say Yusuf H. Gauwas was taken to the Pettis County Jail on charges including first degree robbery, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon. The juvenile was transported to a juvenile detention facility.
All of the stolen property was recovered, and a loaded 9 mm pistol was reportedly located inside the suspects' vehicle.
