Mayor Craig A. Moe and Chief Richard McLaughlin would like to inform residents about arrests that were made on Sunday, July 14. At approximately 9:52 am, the Laurel Police Department responded to the 300 block of Main St. for a home invasion robbery.  A married couple who resided in that area reported that they had been robbed by three males at gunpoint, who had barged into their home, bound the wife with tape and demanded money. The robbery was interrupted when the husband returned home and the suspect's fled after a brief struggle, taking with them a lockbox containing several thousand dollars. PFC Aaron Waddell was patrolling the area immediately after the robbery and located one of the suspects carrying away the lockbox. PFC Waddell pursued the suspect and apprehended him. LPD's Criminal Investigations Division took over the investigation and the two remaining suspects were identified and arrested.  All three were charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, assault and theft.
