Three men charged in Ewa Beach convenience store robbery

Three men have been charged in connection with a robbery at an Ewa Beach convenience store late Tuesday night.

Jimmy Robinson, 21, and Upu I. Vai, 20, both of Waipahu, were charged with first-degree robbery and were being held on $50,000 bail each. Jacob Nofoa, 19, of Waipahu, was charged with first-degree robbery and was being held on $100,000 bail.

A woman, 24, who allegedly drove the getaway car, was released pending investigation.

Officers arrested the four shortly after midnight Wednesday in Nanakuli.

Police said three men entered the Aloha Ewa Mart Tuesday at 9:49 p.m., and that one man waved a handgun while demanding cigarettes from the clerk.

The other two men grabbed beer and all three ran to an SUV driven by a woman.

A witness was able to get the license plate of the SUV; it was located later in Nanakuli.
