Three men charged in connection with series of robberies, home invasions | Crime
Rochester Police say the three men responsible for a series of robberies and home invasions have been arrested.
Shaw Rucker was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property. Anthony Henderson and Carlton Briggs are both charged with kidnapping and assault.
Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard says the men generally targeted drug dealers, but they're also connected to crimes outside the city.
Sheppard says their string of robberies was one reason for the spike in shootings over the last six weeks. There have been 14 shootings since Christmas day and Sheppard says a lot of them are gang related.
Police say more arrests are anticipated.
