No one says it was quality family time.
But a young woman from Marion County didn’t leave her kids behind when she joined two alleged accomplices in an armed robbery of someone she knew early Wednesday, deputies said.
Alaina Danielle Johnson, 20, of Ocala, had her two babies with her in a truck when she two others —Matthew Allison Thomas, 18, and a 17-year-old boy— pulled up to a home at about 12:30 a.m.
Thomas and the teen got out of the truck and robbed the victims while holding a gun on them – sometimes pointing the gun directly at the head of one of the victims, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
“The suspects took cash, marijuana and a paintball gun,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a report.
One of the victim’s recognized Johnson.
Detectives arrested the trio at about 4:30 p.m.
Johnson, Thomas and the teen are each facing a robbery with a firearm charge.
Johnson and Thomas are in the Marion County Jail with a bonds set at $50,000 each.
The teen is being held in the Marion County Juvenile Detention and has no bond. The Sentinel is not naming him because of his age.
The Sheriff’s Office said not release information about what happened to the babies. No other details were released.
“Detectives are still working this case,” the report said.
