Three suspects were arrested this week after allegedly pretending to be federal agents and handcuffing a family, before holding one of the family members at gunpoint.
Rogers police arrested Maria Guadalupe Serrano, 18, Morissa Ann Jackson, 19, and Kristinlin Bayler, 19, on suspicion of aggravated residential burglary, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, theft of property and criminal impersonation. They are being held in the Benton County Jail on $500,000 bond, according to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.
Police said two of the suspects were seen in a Rogers Walgreen’s on Sunday carrying guns and a pair of handcuffs. Later that day, the three suspects broke into a home at 508 N. Dixieland Road and stole money and jewelry from the occupants, according to the Rogers Police Department.
During the burglary, the suspects identified themselves as federal agents, handcuffed the family and forced them to the ground, police said. They then allegedly held one family member at gunpoint and forced him to drive to his bank and withdraw money.
Following an investigation, police found the suspects at a home on the 1500 block of South Fourth Street in Rogers.
All of the suspects are from Peoria, Ill.
