Three men have been charged in series of nine armed robberies at 7-Eleven stores in the Philadelphia area earlier this year, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday.


Nazear Newton, 18, of Huntington Valley; Quentin Archie, 19, of Philadelphia; and, Phillip Coleman, 19, of Philadelphia were being held at the Montgomery County Jail awaiting hearings after each failed to post $1 million in bail.

The robberies occurred in Bucks, Philadelphia, and Montgomery Counties between Jan 21 and Feb 21, when the alleged thieves were apprehended following an armed robbery in Ambler, the District Attorney’s Office said.





Immediately after the robbery at the Ambler 7-Eleven, Upper Dublin Township police broadcast a description of the men over the police radio. A Whitpain Township police officer spotted a car that appeared as if it were lost and executed a traffic stop after the driver failed to signal for a turn. The officer noticed a lot of cash visible in the car. The men were arrested after a store clerk was brought to the scene and identified them as as the robbers, offcials said.

The trio were initially charged with robbery, theft, conspiracy, receiving stolen property and other related crimes and held after failing to post $100,000 bail. 

An investigation which included analyzing cell phones and cell phone records, interviews, search warrants,  and analyzing surveillance footage from previous robberies found the three were involved in eight other robberies, leading to the additional charges.
