The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested two people in connection with an armed robbery that occurred early Monday morning in Osprey.
Deputies responded to a retail store in the 13000 block of S. Tamiami Trail in Osprey around 2:30 a.m. for a report of an armed robbery. The victim witnessed a male suspect leaving the store through an emergency exit with a cart full of merchandise. When confronted, the suspect held the victim at gunpoint and loaded the stolen merchandise into a car behind the business driven by a young female. The victim was uninjured, and both suspects fled in the car. Fingerprints recovered at the scene led detectives to identify 23-year-old Trentin Richardson as the male suspect. Through investigation, detectives later identified 17-year-old Shyanne Redmon as the driver. Both were taken into custody, and the stolen merchandise was recovered.
Richardson, of 13630 County Road 675, Parrish, is charged with one count of Robbery with a Firearm. He remains in custody at the Sarasota County Jail on $100,000 bond. Redmon, of 1515 16th Street West, Bradenton, is charged with Principle to Robbery with a Firearm. She was transferred on Thursday to the Manatee Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
