Authorities arrest both suspects in fatal Haines City robbery

Both suspects wanted in a deadly Polk County robbery caught on a surveillance camera were arrested Sunday, including one found in a Tampa motel.

Jacroy Shamar Waddell, 28, of Haines City was arrested shortly after midnight at the Red Roof Inn, 2307 E Busch Blvd. in Tampa, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Facing charges of first-degree murder and robbery with a firearm, Waddell was being held without bail in the Hillsborough County Jail.

Later, the Polk Sheriff's Office said it had arrested the other suspect wanted in connection with the crime, Jadarius Latra Wilson, 19, of Haines City. He was booked Sunday night into the Polk County Jail.

Authorities say the two men entered Video Latino, 1719 Hinson Ave. in Haines City on Friday morning. They struggled with a store clerk, 20-year-old Jaime Magana Jr., and stole cash.

A customer later found Magana, the store owner's son, shot and killed.

The store's video surveillance captured images of the suspects as they struggled with Magana and took cash from the register. Investigators say the video shows Waddell was the shooter.

Records show he has been arrested five times in Polk on charges, including armed robbery, battery and resisting an officer.
