CLEARWATER — One suspect in a Wednesday armed home invasion robbery was arrested, police said. Two more suspects are on the loose.

Robert Marquis Reynolds, 19, of Tampa, faces three counts of home invasion robbery in addition to charges of using a firearm while committing a felony and possessing cocaine.

At about 9:50 p.m., police said, the resident of 1121 Druid Road Bld. 4, Apt. 6, was outside when three men with pistols confronted him and forced him inside.

The suspects held the man and two other occupants at gunpoint while they robbed the home, police said. Then they ran away.

Officers found Reynolds nearby as he was trying to get rid of a gun. When police searched him, they found several stolen items and cocaine.

The investigation continues, and the two other suspects are on the loose.

Police said the crime was not random.
