SALT LAKE CITY — Police arrested three people Tuesday after they allegedly carried out an armed robbery in Salt Lake City.

Desmond L. Redkettle, Justin P. Craft and Jayvaughn Firethunder were each arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, according to police reports. Redkettle was also charged with driving on a suspended license.

The three suspects allegedly entered a home, where they used a gun to confront a 46-year-old female and a 21-year-old male and rob them before leaving. Police were able to track the stolen property to a home near 1300 South Major Street and make arrests.

Redkettle and Firethunder both admitted to police they had robbed the two victims in the home at gunpoint, according to police reports. Craft was identified from a photo line as an individual who entered the home and carried out an armed robbery.

Police said they found other stolen property at the home, which they said may be tied to earlier robberies.
