Three Pontiac teenagers could face life in prison after being charged with armed robbery.
The teens are accused of committing armed robbery in connection with two separate incidences that occurred early Friday morning.
According to police, Joey Steven Vang, 17, Rocky Herr, 17, and Jerry Herr, 18, approached a man as he pulled into an Auburn Hills parking lot around 3:45 a.m. Police said the teens were wearing masks and one was carrying a rifle. They ordered the man to get out of his vehicle and then assaulted him as he got out of the car. They took his money and cell phone before fleeing the scene in a truck.
An hour later, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office reported that a person had been robbed at gun point in Orion Township. The suspects were again wearing masks and were carrying an AK-47.
Police found the suspects in their vehicle around 4:30 a.m. They were taken into custody and booked for armed robbery. Their masks and weapons were recovered by police.
