UPDATE: Crimetracker: Mugshots of robbery suspects released

SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Sevierville Police Department arrested four people from North Carolina Monday morning after an armed robbery and chase.

Officers responded to a business on Winfield Dunn Parkway around 11:45 a.m. Investigators say two men walked into the business with one pointing a handgun at workers.

They demanded money from the register before taking off in a silver sedan.

The car eventually stopped at the Sevier/Knox county line on I-40.

Four men were arrested on aggravated robbery charges: Christy Wilson, 38, Blaine Rice, 25, Natasha Robinson, 26, and Mark Rhodes, 41. All are from North Carolina.
