From the Upshur County Sheriff's Office:

UPSHUR COUNTY, TX - On Thursday, the Upshur County Sheriff Office, along with Upshur County Constable Pct. 2 Jason Weeks, responded to the Eagle's Nest Donut Shop in Diana in reference to an aggravated robbery. Deputies learned around 4:00 a.m. the owner of the business went to the back door and opened it after hearing noises come from the back of the business.

This is when two subjects wearing bandanas over their face appeared at the back door and one subject pointed a handgun at the business owner. Two other subjects entered the front of the business, went inside and took money and other items from the business. All subjects then fled on foot from the location.

During the course of the investigation, investigators identified several suspects at a nearby apartment complex. A search warrant was obtained for the apartment where evidence connecting the subjects to the robbery was located. Three juveniles and one adult were arrested and charged with aggravated robbery.  Another adult at the location was charged with Delivery of Marijuana.

The juveniles are being detained at the Gregg County Juvenile Detention Center while the two adults are being held in the Upshur County Jail.

The two adults are Lamune Beechum, 20, and Marcellous Valentine, 18, both of Diana.

Bond for Valentine is set at $50,000 on the aggravated robbery charge and bond for Beechum is set at $25,000 on the delivery of marijuana charge. This investigation is still ongoing and further charges are possible.
