Chattanooga police arrested three suspects in a Highway 58 armed robbery Thursday night, according to a news release.

Sgt. Wayne Jefferson's release said three men, one armed with a handgun, entered the Dollar General Store at 10:15 p.m. and told the clerk to empty the registers and the safe.

All three were dressed in black and wearing blue surgical gloves. They took the money and left in a blue Chevrolet Impala.

Police saw a car matching the description traveling south on Highway 58 and pulled it over. They found cash and blue surgical gloves in the car and arrested the three on charges of aggravated robbery and criminal conspiracy.

The suspects are Jassiem Robinson, 18; Tod Smith, 20; and Cartavius Fisher, 21.
