Jacksonville, FL — Just days after the Nassau County Sheriff's Office arrested four suspects connected to an armed robbery at Tracks Arcade in Yulee, deputies say two of those individuals are now being charged in connection with a recent armed robbery at the Beach House Arcade.
Deputies say Josiah Smith, 20, and Ebony Hixon. 29, are both being charged with robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say the robbery at the Beach House Arcade on US Highway 17 in Yulee happened around 2 PM on December 6th, with two men wearing masks entering the business and ordering everyone to the floor. Deputies say an employee was then forced to empty the cash register, with the suspects fleeing shortly after. Deputies believe that Hixon served as the getaway driver in this robbery. Deputies say more arrests are likely.
At this time, Smith and Hixon remain in the Nassau County Jail.
