Two teens arrested in robbery at Oldsmar sushi restaurant

Authorities arrested two teen boys Wednesday in connection with a Monday night robbery at an Oldsmar sushi restaurant.

Kevon Williams, 16, and Jordan Freemon, 17, were the two who stormed into Boton Sushi, at 300 E State St., and held guns to the owners' heads while demanding cash, according to Pinellas County sheriff's deputies.

One of the owners handed the robbers a tip jar, which one of the teens dropped on the floor before scooping up cash and a lottery ticket, deputies said. They then fled in a gold Ford Taurus.

One of the employees was able to jot down the car's tag number, which led police to Jabari O. Wade, 18, of Clearwater, who was arrested later that night during a traffic stop. During the stop, Williams ran from the car, but was later tracked down and arrested. Freemon was arrested separately.

Deputies said Wade acted as the getaway driver for the robbery. He was booked in jail Monday night on a charge of principal armed robbery and later released on $5,000 bail.

Williams and Freemon were both taken to the Pinellas County Juvenile Assessment Center, where they were held on armed robbery charges.
