Three teen-agers have now been arrested in last week's armed robbery of the New Century Bank in Goldsboro.

The latest charge of armed robbery is against Leon Vinson Jr., 17, of South John Street.

Two others charged are Octavius M. Broadhurst, 17, of East Maple Street, who was arrested Wednesday, and Melena Louise Hudgins, 18, of East New Hope Road, who was arrested Friday.

All three were placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of $100,000 secured bonds. Vinson's first court appearance was scheduled for today to determine his legal representation.

The bank at 425 N. Spence Ave. was robbed by one gunman at about 1:20 p.m. Friday.

Police Maj. Jay Memmelaar said today that the robbery was still being investigated.
