Mother, daughter among robbery suspects

NORCROSS -- A mother-daughter duo is among a crew of suspects implicated in recent armed robberies in Norcross.

Gwinnett County police said Chateris Quintelle Villanueva, 33, and her 18-year-old daughter, Britney Kayla Whitlock, were among a number of suspects who pulled off at least a pair of robberies at apartments in Norcross early Thursday morning.

A third suspect arrested, 19-year-old Christopher Foster, resided at the same address as Villanueva and Whitlock, records showed.

According to police reports, victims reported that a trio of intruders -- dressed in dark clothing with bandannas concealing their faces -- kicked in the door of their home at Oakbrook Pointe Apartments off Pirkle Road, forcing them onto the ground at gunpoint.

During an otherwise silent robbery, the suspects reportedly took only one man's wallet and keys.

Just a couple of hours later, another victim reported that a vehicle, allegedly driven by Villanueva, pulled up to his car outside his Carrington Chase apartment.

The victim told police that three suspects then exited their vehicle, with Foster pointing a gun at his head and ordering him to "give it up." The suspects proceeded to take his cell phone, keys and stereo face plate.

Using the license plate number taken down by the victim, police were later able to track down the vehicle in Tucker.

Villanueva, Whitlock and Foster were charged with two counts of armed robbery apiece.
