Searcy police say a 19-year-old man has been arrested in an armed robbery after officers used applications on stolen smart phones to track him and a juvenile accomplice.

About 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Searcy police responded to a report of an armed robbery in the 100 block of North Charles Street. There, two witnesses told police that they were walking from Walgreens to their apartment when two males, one black and one white, approached them.

The white male, whom Searcy police say is a minor, pulled out a revolver and directed the victims to "empty their pockets," according to a Searcy Police Department statement. Among the stolen items were the victims' cell phones, each one containing a tracking app. Using those, officers matched phones' travel to that of a vehicle, which they stopped, police said.

When officers made the traffic stop and approached the vehicle, they could hear alarms on the victims' phones, police said. Dante Kyree Hardy, 19, of Searcy, was in the vehicle, Searcy police said, and he was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery. He is being held at the White County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.

The white male is a minor, and Searcy police are releasing not yet releasing any further information on him.
