The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrested 23-year-old Robert Robinson, 20-year-old Lance Thomas Jr. and 20-year-old Jarrell Washington on St. Helena Island on Thursday.

The three remained in the Beaufort County jail on Friday as fugitives, awaiting extradition to Georgia.

The men are suspects in a home invasion early Wednesday in Carrollton, Ga. No one at the Carrollton Police Department was available to talk about the case.

The Beaufort Gazette reports that Thomas and Washington were arrested when a deputy pulled them over. Robinson fled but was arrested later at a nearby gas station.
