Law enforcement in Newton were on the hunt for three men allegedly involved in an armed robbery Thursday evening.

Police say several suspects robbed a clothing store in Williamsburg earlier in the evening.

The men were taken into custody just after 9 p.m.

The Newton Daily News alerted residents within a half-mile radius around Barney’s Towing in Southeast Newton to be on alert as police were searching the area for the men following a short pursuit on I-80.

A Channel 13 viewer said the suspects were arrested on S 13th Ave E in Newton.

Calls to the Jasper County Sheriff and Newton Police have not been returned.
