FIRST ON 3: Arrests made in Winner's World robbery, two more wanted


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff's deputies have arrested four people in connection with the robbery of a Calabash sweepstakes parlor last month. Two suspects are still wanted.

Investigators are looking for help identifying the person caught on surveillance video (photo, right) at Winner's World November 29. There's a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Meanwhile, Xavier Aturo Jenrette, 22, of Shallotte is charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Brandon Leroyal Dyson, 28, of Little River, SC, is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and robbery with a dangerous weapon. They are both in the Brunswick County Jail.

Jacobian Wilson, 34, of Longs, SC, is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, while James Kenneth Allison, 29, also of Longs, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery. They are both in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Horry County, SC, awaiting extradition to Brunswick County.

Investigators also have a warrant for Ronchekala Shawntae Veness, also known as "Koot," 32, of Loris, SC. She is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

During the early-morning robbery on November 29, a customer in the store had a heart attack and died. At the time, District Attorney Jon David said his office was investigating to see if there were any legal grounds to pursue murder or manslaughter charges against the robbery suspects. No one has been charged with those crimes.

winners world robbers

They need to be charged wit murder because he would not have died that day if not for the robbery. He would still be with his family and friends who loved him very much. It was only because of the robbery that he had a heart attack. I hope they dont let the life of a wonderful man go un-noticed and just charge them with robbery.

I agree... He's my

I agree... He's my grandfather & it's been 2 years & a couple months & I still miss him so much:(

I feel they need to back

I feel they need to back track with people they have because they are charging one of the suspect; which is an innocent man for something he didn't do, so if they gonna do justice do it the right way. Everyday innocent people get charge for crimes they don't comment

Felony Murder Rule

I would think the DA knows about the felony murder rule, as in if you are committing a felony crime and someone dies during that criminal act, then you can be charged. I would think if the stress of that robbery occurring while the customer was there may have caused the heart attack, then they should all be charged. I would bet my paycheck that the customer would not have had the heart attack if not for that stress.........if the attack occurred while the armed robbery was in progress or as it was ending or such. Just sayin'
