3 Charged in Robbery, Crash

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

Three Savannah men were apprehended this morning after a car being pursued by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police crashed into a tree on East Victory Drive. 

David Johnson, 19, of the 3500 block of Skidaway Drive, Reginald Lorenzo Rivers, 20, of the 100 block of Alpine Drive and Darnell Tawaun Moore, 20, of the 3300 block of April Street have been charged with armed robbery.

Johnson and Rivers were taken into custody just before 3 a.m. after the maroon Nissan Altima they were in went out of control at Victory and Harmon Street and crashed into a tree. One suspect was taken into custody outside the car. The second attempted to flee through yards and was taken into custody a block west on Victory. Both were transported to Memorial University Medical Center for evaluation of potential injuries from the crash and then arrested.

Moore was arrested later at his residence after being identified as the third suspect who ran from the scene.

A search of the area by Metro officers later located a rifle in shrubbery in the 1800 block of Victory and a revolver on the north side of Harmon Street. 

The events began about 2:20 a.m. when another man reported he had been robbed on the 4700 block of Skidaway Road by males who drove away in a maroon Altima. An Islands Precinct sergeant saw the car leaving a gas station on Skidaway and attempted a traffic stop only to have the car speed away.
