JACKSONVILLE — Three men have been arrested in connection with the Walmart robbery on October 3 .
Police have in custody arrested Maurice DeShun Jones, 28, Willie Duane Rogers, 23, and Jonathan Rashard Brown, 19.
All three are charged with engaging in organized criminal activity.
Police tell KETK a Crime Stopper's tip lead to the arrest of Jones and Rogers, while Brown turned himself in to authorities.
The three are accused of stealing nearly $10,000 from the store.
One suspect is still at large.
Jacksonville Police tell KETK, two bags of money were stolen from the Walmart on the 1300 block of S. Jackson St. on Sunday night.
It happened around 11:30 pm, when the registers were being changed out and the bags were sitting on a counter.
Police could not confirm the amount of money stolen, but Walmart employees tell KETK, it was at least $10,000.
Witnesses say the thief was an African American man, who ran up behind the Walmart employee and grabbed the bags while her back was turned.
Jacksonville Police will be reviewing the security footage from the store to see if they can identify the thief, but officials say they do have a few possible leads.
