The charges are a result of armed robbery that allegedly occurred at 1:10 p.m. on Jan. 15 in the 1300 block of West Fourth Avenue in unincorporated Belleville.

The victim reported he was contacted by a friend to hangout. When the victim walked up to a vehicle parked in the driveway and sat in the back seat, he reported a passenger in the vehicle pointed a handgun at him, demanded money and some marijuana. The victim gave them a small amount of U.S. currency and marijuana.

Gully, Morgan and Fender are currently in custody at St. Clair County Jail.
