BATON ROUGE - Police filed more robbery charges Tuesday against two of three suspects in the armed robbery of a Baton Rouge pizza place.

Investigators said Demarcus Mathews and Terrance Venson were also involved in other recent business robberies around East Baton Rouge Parish.

Police said Mathews was linked to the robbery of the Sugar Belle bakery and the Real Deal store, both of which happened on Feb. 12. They also linked both Mathews and Venson to the armed robbery of Metro Personal Computer Services on Feb. 13.

The two were arrested Sunday along with Jeremy Ford after a robbery at Papa John's Pizza on Lee Drive. Police said the three fled from officers in a car but were eventually stopped and arrested. Officers said they recovered guns and cash taken in the robbery after the three were caught.

Mathews and Venson face additional armed robbery charges for the crimes they were connected to.
