Four suspects have been arrested in connection with a robbery that happened on Halloween night in Alexandria.

The suspects, all from Alexandria, are Caleb Styer, 19, Kolten Neely, 16, Devon Van Scoik, 16, and a 14-year-old boy who was not identified by police because he’s a juvenile. The names of those 16 and older are released if they face felony level charges.
The arrests, announced Sunday, are the result of a six-week investigation, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
The investigation revealed that the four suspects all entered a residence on the 400 block of 11th Avenue East on October 31. Two of them were allegedly armed with long guns when they entered the home.
The suspects reportedly demanded drugs from a boy who was alone in the house at the time. The suspects then ransacked several rooms inside the home, searching for narcotics, police believe.
They then demanded all the firearms in the home and left with three long guns owned by the homeowner. The victim was not physically injured during the incident.
There was damage sustained to personal property and the four suspects fled with the firearms.
The investigation is still ongoing. All suspects are in custody awaiting a court appearance.
