Trio arraigned on charges from attempted home invasion and armed robbery


by Your Alaska Link News Team

ANCHORAGE-Anchorage police arrest and charge four individuals after attempted home break-in and armed robbery. James Griffin,  Demetri Scott and Jacobi Stephens were arraigned in court Monday for multiple charges. A fourth suspect, Chantel Rushing did not appear because she is listed as "combative."

All three men have prior criminal convictions in Alaska.

APD were called to a trailer inside the Penland Parkway mobile home park early Sunday morning. Initial calls said two people broke into the home armed with guns and struck one victim, according to charging documents.

Police say this was not a random home robbery. The alleged robbers knew the victims, Amanda Lloyd and Jonah Robinson. Charging documents say Robinson and Llyod sold marijuana to Scott and Stephens.

The couple were charged with child neglect after APD discovered a marijuana grow inside the home, where a three-year-old toddler also lives. The toddler is in custody of family members.
