3 suspects accused of robbing KC motorists stuck in snow

KANSAS CITY — Three men accused of robbing motorists stuck in the snow have been caught after — you guessed it — they got stuck in the snow themselves.

Prosecutors announced robbery and armed criminal action charges Friday against 17-year-old Michael L. Wilson Jr. and 18-year-old Darion O. Page, both of Kansas City. The third suspect was a juvenile.

The Kansas City Star reported that police found the suspects stuck in a snowdrift early Thursday morning.

The victims' credit cards were found in their vehicle.

Court documents say Wilson denied participating in the robberies and told police that all he did was drive.

The documents say Page admitted being present, but he blamed the holdups on the juvenile. The Star says the 16-year-old declined to make a statement.
