The Henderson County Sheriff's Office said three suspects are facing charges after an armed robbery on Monday.

Around 3 p.m., deputies said two women brandished a firearm and robbed a home in the area of East Flat Rock. The pair are accused of stealing money and cell phones.

Approximately 30 minutes later, a traffic stop was conducted when deputies spotted a vehicle matching the description from the victim.

Deputies said stolen items were recovered from the car along with narcotics and drug paraphernalia. In a search near where the traffic stop occurred, deputies said a K-9 located the weapon which turned out to be an Airsoft pistol.

Deputies arrested 35-year-old Rebecca Lynn Luna and 26-year-old Kerris Nicole Ball who are both charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, morphine and drug paraphernalia.

A male occupant in the vehicle, identified as 29-year-old James Phillip Purvis, was arrested and charged with felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
