3 in custody in robbery of wife of Missouri governor-elect

     (AP) – Three teenagers are in custody in the armed robbery of the

wife of Missouri Gov.-Elect Eric Greitens, who says it’s a good thing police got

to them before he did.

     Eric and Sheena Greitens spoke at a brief news conference Tuesday. Sheena

Greitens was robbed at gunpoint Monday while in her car outside a coffee shop in

St. Louis. She was unharmed.

     Police say the suspects also stole a car, used it in another attempted robbery

and broke into another car. Police were able to track the cellphone taken in the

break-in to the suspects’ vehicle, which crashed during a brief chase. The

suspects are ages 14, 15 and 19.

     Eric Greitens says he is glad police got to them first, but neither he nor a

spokesman would elaborate.
