ACCPD detectives announce today that three individuals are in custody, charged with
multiple Armed Robberies and other crimes which occurred in January. Combined, Terique
Travion Eberhart (20,) Raydreone Keshad Howard (19,) and Tyreek Amin Thomas (20) are charged
with almost 60 felonies that include multiple counts of Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Motor
Vehicle Theft, and Entering Auto. All three are from Athens.
ACCPD believes the trio began with two Armed Robberies in the early morning of January
8, 2019, robbing a Golden Pantry convenience store and the Choo Choo restaurant. Earlier,
detectives believe the trio stole a vehicle at a nearby apartment complex. In these incidents,
Eberhart, Howard, and Thomas are each charged with two counts of Armed Robbery, three counts
of Aggravated Assault, and one count of Motor Vehicle Theft.
On the night and early morning of January 24 and 25, Eberhart and Howard are believed
to be responsible for numerous Entering Auto incidents that occurred in the Cedar Shoals Drive
and Barrington Drive area. Each has been charged with 19 counts of Entering Auto.
In addition, ACCPD detectives believe that Thomas committed the Armed Robbery at
Murphy’s Express convenience store on January 3, 2019. He has been charged with one count
each of Armed Robbery and Aggravated Assault in this incident.
There are other similar incidents which occurred during this same time frame that ACCPD
detectives are continuing to investigate and additional charges are likely for these individuals.
Eberhart, Howard, and Thomas are in custody at the Clarke County Jail.
