COLUMBIA — Columbia police arrested four men early Sunday morning in connection with an armed robbery in the parking lot of Eastgate Apartments, 1802 E. Broadway.

Jhaz Morgan, 17, Dominick T. Roland, 17, Versus R. Morgan Jr., 19, and a juvenile male were arrested on suspicion of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

A man was approached by the four men, one of which pulled a handgun and demanded money, Columbia police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said.

The four men took an undisclosed amount of money and left in a black vehicle but were arrested soon after, Stroer said.

The man was not injured during the robbery, she said.

Jhaz Morgan, Versus R. Morgan and Roland were being held in the Boone County Jail as of Monday afternoon, each with a $25,000 bond.

What happend to the rule if you want something get out and work for it? Were these people raied to taake what they want? In thirty years I have never even thought of taking something I didn't earn, but then again my family tought me right from wrong. Then again I also hold doors for people, if someone drops something I hand it back to them, and help those in need. Guess not everyone was tought those things.
