COLUMBIA - Columbia police arrested three men Tuesday in connection with the robbery at McDonald's on Smiley Lane.
Detectives arrested Alexander Lovin, 18, Javion Swope, 18 and Jaden Rother, 17. All three are charged with second-degree robbery.
The McDonald's was robbed on Nov. 11. From the restaurant's video camera footage, a CPD detective saw a red Jeep Liberty driving around the parking lot. The video showed a man police identified as Swope walking from where the Jeep had parked.
Police say Swope committed the robbery in the drive-thru and Lovin drove the car. They also identified Rother as a passenger in the vehicle, and say he was involved in the robbery plan.
