SMYRNA, Tenn. – Two suspects were arrested after stealing multiple items from a man at a gas station.

Officials said the suspects, identified as De Erius Parks and Gabrielle Spencer, used a handgun and robbed a man who was pumping gas at Home Depot Thursday.

The suspects fled after stealing the man’s wallet, cash, cell phone, Mac Book, Samsung tablet, and a backpack containing other computer equipment.

Police from Smyrna and Murfreesboro later located and arrested the suspects at a pawn shop in Murfreesboro.

Parks and Spencer were charged with aggravated robbery and theft over $1,000. Both were being held in the Rutherford County Jail.

Other stolen items found in the suspects’ vehicle were believed to be from auto burglaries that took place in Lebanon and Wilson County. Officials said charges were pending from those locations.
