Three teens have been charged in connection with the same alleged armed robbery in which a Kansas City, Mo., man was charged last week.

A 16-year-old Wellsville boy, a 16-year-old Baldwin City boy and a 17-year-old Lawrence boy have been charged in Douglas County District Court in connection with an armed robbery that allegedly occurred July 26 in Baldwin City.

Each teen faces two felonies, aggravated robbery while armed with a 9 mm handgun and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, and one count of misdemeanor theft of a value less than $1,500. The charging documents allege that the group robbed a victim for cash and marijuana at an apartment in the 200 block of Washington Street in Baldwin City.

A 21-year-old man, Kylan Raphael Newman, was charged last week with three felonies: aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, the Journal-World reported.

Court records indicate that the two 16-year-olds were released to house arrest with electronic monitoring. They must submit to random drug testing, among other conditions. Records indicate the 17-year-old is still in the custody of Douglas County Youth Services.
