College Station Police officers responded to an alarm call at a gas station in College Station early Wednesday morning. 

At 2:25 a.m., the Shell Station on the corner of HWY 6 and Harvey Rd. was broken into and robbed of $5,000 in cigarettes.

Security footage showed five suspects entering the gas station by prying open the front doors. Security cameras caught the suspects taking cigarettes as well as footage of the suspects’ cars.

Around 2:35 a.m. the suspects’ cars were spotted traveling south on HWY 6 by a College Station Police Department (CPSD) officer.  The first vehicle was stopped by the CPSD officer just north of the Navasota River. The second vehicle was eventually stopped by Grimes County Sheriff’s office south of Navasota.

The suspects, Darryl Johnson, 30, Marcus Jordan, 39, Aaron Kimbrough, 23, Samuel Wyatt-Johnson, 22, and Isaiah Fleming, 22, were charged with Burglary of a Building. The cigarettes have not been recovered.

Police say the charge is a state jail felony, punishable by six months to two years confinement and up to a $10,000 fine.     

This case has been turned over to the College Station Police Department Criminal Investigation Division for further investigation.  If you have any information regarding the robbery, the College Station Police Department asks you call 979-764-3600.
