Police say a teen who they first thought was the victim of a home invasion and robbery turned out to be a suspect in the crime.Zebulon police said they responded to a home invasion call Sunday around 10:30 p.m. on North Popular Street.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found 64-year-old Gladerene Petty crying and visibly shaken. She told officers that two masked men with a gun forced her 19-year-old foster son, Rashaad Yarborough, inside the house.

The men took cash, jewelry and documents from Petty's house and then fled the scene on foot to a vehicle that was waiting nearby.

An investigation revealed that the home invasion robbery was planned by Yarborough. Investigators say he conspired with the two other suspects prior to the crime.

Police arrested Yarborough during the investigation and the other two were arrested in Raleigh. The other suspects are identified as 51-year-old Carlton Montague and 40-year-old Marion Yarborough -- both of Raleigh.

Montague is charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. He is being held under a $75,000 bond.

Marion Yarborough is charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, one count of assault by pointing a gun and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He is being held under a $100,000 bond.

Rashad is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and is being held under a $50,000 bond.

All of the suspects are in the Wake County Jail.
