Two people arrested after a SWAT raid in Charlottesville are charged with trying to rob a food truck in Albemarle County.

Police say 31-year-old Anthony Euell Stargell Jr. and 25-year-old Loren Tyler Reed Foster are facing three felony charges in connection with the attempted armed robbery in the 6100 block of Rockfish Gap Turnpike.

Investigators believe Stargell and Foster tried to rob a food truck behind the Pro-Re-Nata Brewery on May 6, 2017. They say a gun was used during the incident, but no money was taken and no one was injured.

Officers arrested them Thursday, May 18, during a raid at a home in the 800 block of Elliot Avenue.

Police say they used a flash-bang device to enter the home, which sparked a small fire in the basement. Firefighters arrived on the scene around 11 p.m. and were able to quickly put the fire out. Officials believe the damage to about $500.

Stargell and Foster are being held without bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. They are both charged with robbery, attempted robbery, and the use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

The Albemarle County Police Department thanked the Charlottesville Police Department for its assistance in capturing the two suspects.
