McALESTER — The Krebs police arrested three robbery suspects early Tuesday morning.

According to the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office daily inmate list, one woman and two men were arrested and are being held without bond on police complaints of robbery by force or fear and conspiracy to commit robbery.

According to Krebs Police Chief Dennis Cook, the three suspects were inside Rumors Sports Bar in Krebs Monday evening. Cook said the woman lured a man by the name of Erin Sturdevant outside the bar where two other men were waiting.

“They assaulted him, reached in his pockets to try and rob him of cash and took approximately $100 in cash,” Cook said.

Krebs police investigated the incident at the bar. “Our office found out who they were, found them in Hartshorne with the help of the Hartshorne Police Department and the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office, and they were arrested without incident at the suspects’ residence."
