The Pleasant View Market at Savin Hill Avenue and Pleasant Street was robbed at gunpoint around 6 p.m. by three masked men with a gun, who made off with some cash and several cartons of Newport cigarettes.
Not long after, police shut down Roach Street off Dorchester Avenue when they tracked the suspects to an apartment at 22 Roach St.
Boston Police report arresting three men in a Roach Street apartment after the SWAT team arrived and a hostage negotiator convinced them to give themselves up because they were surrounded.
Officers then executed a search warrant and were able to recover a loaded .45 caliber handgun, a large amount of cash, the cartons of cigarettes which had been taken from the store as well as several other key pieces of evidence.
Jose Morales, 21, and Andronique Dossantos, 18, both of Dorchester and Kallahn Winbush, 18, of Cambridge, were charged with armed robbery while masked, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police say.
Dossantos was already in trouble with the law for his alleged involvement in the Savin Hill salad robbery last October.
