Two men already in the Smith County jail have been charged with additional charges of aggravated robbery of the Pac-N-Sac gas station, 403 SSE Loop 323, on Oct. 18.

Tyler investigators executed arrest warrants for Jordan Taylor Devers, 18, and Martiness Vernon Jones-Bigham, 20.

Devers is suspected of driving the get-away vehicle and Jones-Bigham is suspected of having robbed the store, Tyler police said.

In investigating the robbery, police were informed by the clerk that a young Hispanic male wearing a black hoodie entered the store armed with a pocketknife, walked around the counter and demanded money.

The clerk threatened him with a Taser and chased him out of the store, according to police.

Investigators are looking into other armed robbery cases to determine if Devers and Jones-Bigham may be involved.
