Three arrested during armed home invasion robbery on Martin Way

Staff writerSeptember 9, 2013 

Sheriff’s deputies interrupted an armed home invasion at Tony’s Mobile Home Park in the 6800 block of Martin Way early Saturday morning, arresting three suspects.
A judge found probable cause to support allegations of three counts of first-degree robbery and one count of first-degree burglary against all three suspects: Kevon Olivere, 26; Jevon James, 21; and Antonio Baker, 23.
The trio was ordered held at the Thurston County Jail during a court hearing Monday, after Thurston County Superior Court Judge James Dixon found probable cause to support the accusations against them.
Olivere was being held Monday on a no bail hold. James and Baker were being held Monday with bail set at $50,000.
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the mobile home park about 1:30 a.m. after a 911 caller requested law enforcement at his mobile home, Sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Brady said.
Deputies arrested two suspects, including James, who allegedly tried to flee, and Baker, who was allegedly found hiding in a bathroom, court papers state. Olivere also was arrested at the mobile home.
Six occupants of the mobile home were ordered to lie on the ground at gunpoint while the suspects stole cell phones, cash and electronics from the residence, Brady said.
The man who lived at the mobile home had been struck in the face with the butt-end of a rifle during the robbery, and suffered a laceration to his cheek, Brady said.
Court papers do not indicate which of the suspects was armed with a firearm, described as an "AR-15 style rifle."
Deputies got a search warrant for the suspects’ vehicle parked outside the mobile home, and it led detectives to a Lakewood address, but deputies were unable to apprehend a fourth suspect still being sought, Brady said.
The investigation early Saturday morning was hindered because the six victims spoke very little English and it was hard for deputies to get details about exactly what had happened, Brady said. Brady said a Spanish-speaking detective is leading the investigation and was interviewing the alleged victims through the weekend.
