WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Three men face criminal charges for robbing a West Lafayette gas station last week.

Andre Brown, of East Chicago, and Tyler Chandler and Charles Jenkins Jr., both of Gary, each face four charges.

According to court documents, two of the men went into the Circle K on Yeager Road and Sagamore Parkway wearing bandannas early Friday morning. One had a handgun. They got away with the money from the cash register, cigarettes and the clerk’s cell phone.

The next day, investigators got Chandler’s name and address in the Richfield Apartment complex from a gun store in Lafayette.

Investigators were able to stop a car with all three men as well as the woman they were staying with at the complex. They later found the stolen phone and clothing worn during the robbery inside the apartment.

Officers said Chandler admitted that Brown and Jenkins committed the robbery and he went about 45 minutes earlier to see how much cash was in the drawer.
