Alexis Starkey and Breyon Starkey are accused of larceny, possession of stolen goods, obtaining property by false pretense, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Alexis Starkey is being held in the Wayne County Detention Center under a $75,000.00 bond.

Breyon Starkey is under a $82,500.00 for the five charges as well as an additional larceny and false pretense charge from another incident.
