The second suspect accused of committing a home invasion at a Piedmont Drive residence was arrested Monday, according to the Muscogee County Jail website.

Dequindre Snellings, 18, is charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault. He joins 19-year-old Adarious White, who faces the same charges.

Both suspects are accused of holding five victims at gunpoint in their 1000 block home at about 8:25 p.m., Wednesday. According to an earlier report, Snellings and White took an undisclosed amount of cash during the robbery. The suspects are accused of firing one shot in the house during the incident.

No one was injured, according to the report.

Snellings' arrest comes after the Saturday apprehension of 29-year-old Joshua Jones, who was wanted in connection with a separate home invasion that occurred on Twin Chapel Drive on March 16.

Jones is accused of holding five adults and two children at gunpoint with the help of 27-year-old suspected cohort Katherine Hudson. He was arrested in Phenix City, where he is being held on Alabama charges for possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and contempt of court.

During her Friday Recorder's Court hearing, police said Hudson claimed that Jones was holding her daughter hostage, forcing her to participate in the home invasion. She also claimed that Jones injected her with several drugs prior to the robbery.
