Five Guys robbery suspects formally charged

Five people, including an employee, have been formally charged with stealing nearly $8,000 in cash from the Five Guys burger place in White Plains.

Prosecutors say four men and one woman, all from Westchester, held up the restaurant located on Main Street on June 30.

The restaurant manager says he was threatened with a gun, before the suspects got away.

All were caught a short time later.

Anthony Bush, 24, Marcus Beechum, 22, Timothy Crawford, 26, Ricardo St. Louis and Lannay Wiggins, both 25, were charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and one each of second-degree robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property.

St. Louis faces an additional felony charge of second-degree assault because he allegedly attacked a police officer.

All five suspects are due back in court Aug. 4. They face up to 25 years in state prison if convicted of first-degree robbery.
