PALM BAY, Fla. - Palm Bay police have arrested three suspects on Wednesday that they say were caught on video storming into a bingo hall armed and demanding cash.

Police arrested 17-year-olds Andrew Guzman, Leonard Valentine and Austin Hill in the May 6 robbery at the Country Bingo at 4450 Dixie Highway in Palm Bay. The teens face armed robbery with a firearm and grand theft charges.

According to Palm Bay police, the three teens barged into the hall and yelled, "This is not a joke. Get down. This is a robbery."

Many patrons and employees dropped to the floor in the video, and one of the men went into an office and took a briefcase that contained cash, deputies said. The bingo hall collects thousands of dollars each night, with proceeds going to charities including the Space Coast Early Intervention, Queen of Hearts, Palm Bay Police Athletic League and Palm Bay Police FOP Lodge.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are likely.
