CLEARWATER - Police arrested three men after two separate incidents led officers to search for suspects Friday.

In one incident, police said, Liearl Terrell Horne, 19, and James B. Pierce, 18, were arrested after a robbery at 3:29 p.m. After robbing Wayne Scott McClain and Catherine Carol Lacy in a home on Apache Trail, an armed trio fled in a vehicle that police soon spotted on Myrtle Street.

Horne was charged with home invasion robbery and resisting arrest without violence. Pierce was charged with armed home invasion, aggravated fleeing and eluding and resisting arrest without violence. Police said a search for more suspects was continuing.

In a separate incident, police arrested Kentrail McRae, 20, on a count of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer with a motor vehicle. Police said they received an anonymous call at 1:42 p.m. about people removing rims from a vehicle on Greenlea Street. When officers arrived, McRae and another person got into a vehicle, with McRae driving. Police said he refused an order to stop and nearly struck an officer. The vehicle was found on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard near Highland and, with the help of his mother, McRae was taken into custody. The second suspect remained at large.
