Both men accused of robbing the Tavernier Dairy Queen at gunpoint on the night of Aug. 23 have now been arrested. Samuel James Murray was charged on Tuesday with robbery with a firearm, burglary while armed and kidnapping.

In March, co-defendant Raheim Whitney, 21, was also charged with robbery with a firearm, kidnapping and burglary while armed.

Both men were found in Miami-Dade County and transported to Monroe County by law enforcement on the mainland on warrants related to the Dairy Queen robbery.

There were four employees working at the business at 92661 Overseas Highway about 10:30 p.m. when the robbery occurred. The said two armed entered and forced them to lay on the floor. They then took one employee in to the office where they removed cash from the safe. The two suspects took all the employee’s cell phones with them when they left in an unknown direction.

They were dressed all in black and had black shirts wrapped around their faces. Each of them had a handgun which they used to threaten the

victims. Murray remained in jail Wednesday on a $35,000 bail. Whitney remained jail in lieu of $270,000 bail.
