ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – One person is in custody and three have been charged in connection with a Dec. 22 home in the invasion of a Roseville group home.

Renesha Irma Motten, 20, Jermain Ramone Beasely, 22 of St. Paul and De’Aries Calvin Collins, 18, were all charged Tuesday with aggravated first-degree robbery by the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office in connection with the incident. Beasely is currently in the Ramsey County Jail, while Motten and Collins remain at-large with warrants out for their arrest.

All three are accused of the Dec. 22, 2011 invasion of Legacy Endeavors Group Home on the 2800 block of Lexington Avenue in Roseville. During the robbery, the group home’s personal support advocate was pistol-whipped several times in the head, because the advocate couldn’t produce cash or narcotics.

For approximately 15 minutes, the suspects ransacked the home searching the home for cash and narcotics. Before leaving, they ripped phone lines from the wall, took all the cell phones and warned the occupants not to call the police. They ended up leaving with cash and credit card information of one of the vulnerable adults.

The suspects were captured on tape after one of them used a victim’s debit card at a local convenience store, according to court documents.

After seeing her photo appear in local media, Motten turned herself into Roseville Police a week after the incident. She was later interviewed and released by authorities.

Beasely was arrested last Friday after being recognized by Metro Transit Police after getting off a bus. Authorities are also looking for a fourth suspect, whose identity has not been released.

If all three are convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fine.

    1. sad but true says:

      Renesha Motten is the woman who stole the wallet from that 91yr old at the convenience store Cristmas Eve. So she turned herself in after this violent act, was released, then ripped the wallet from 91yr old 2 days later???….Nice!

      1. sick and tired says:

        Tell us about it. Probably a World War II veteran as well. What filth they are. Nothing to society. Nothing to offer. Why are they here? Worthless. I wonder if they are from illinois? This state is turning into such a rat hole.

        1. tina says:

          They are here for our” Welfaya” benefits. Have you been living under a rock for the past 15 years?

            That and we have stupider cops in the burbs and hickvilles

        2. hunnybear18 says:

          Yes he was a WWII vet. In fact, his honorable discharge certificate and a prayer card were the things he was most concerned about when his wallet was taken. Thankfully, those were returned to him.

          So Renesha, like to pick on vulnerable adults and the elderly, huh? Real class act. Obviously not tough enough to engage in a fair fight.

  3. Lee says:

    Why was she released? Wouldn’t an armed violent crime committed on strangers warrant being held until trial?

    1. jody says:

      The released her so she could complete her thesis for her Doctorate Degree in Mass Communications at St. Thomas University.

  4. what a nice young lady says:

    Is this the same woman who robbed the 91 year old man of his wallet?

  5. its true says:

    Hey, let’s give Mr. Collins a break. He’s from Michigan and just lost his Grandmother in September of 2011. A little Minnesota nice would work.

    1. Bunny Hoppers says:

      Who cares! They all should be in the hole with her

    2. it is true says:

      Send him back to Michigan. no Mn. Nice here.

      1. haha says:

        ; )

    3. hunnybear18 says:

      So what. Lots of people have lost someone and don’t have to victimize vulnerable adults.

  6. your mother says:

    no crime excuses these racist comments.

    1. eh says:


      This comment is such a joke!

  7. Shamiqua Johnston says:

    Look at the mug shot of Renesha Irma Motten. Guuuuurllll….you need to shave that mustache off. You look like a Dawg.

    1. Fountain of youth says:

      And Jermain Ramone Beasely looks like he’s a lot older than 22. Are they sure they have the right mug shot? I guess this is what happens when thug life catches up to you! You turn into a fossil!! pos!

  8. sad as a zit says:

    the problem is their ages dummy…they were taught and trained under GWB’s watch…and likely their momma’s under Pappa Bush. Nice try though

    1. DontTread says:

      Ya. I’m sure them and their parents where greatly in tune with our past presidents and their policies. Probably can’t even state the three branches of government, even though they’re about to get their rumps pummeled by one of them!

  9. bring it back says:

    It’s plain and simple,we need the DEATH PENALTY!

  10. Lorie Liberal says:

    It’s not their fault they did not get a high paying job they were not qualified for just because of the color of their skin. We need to increase the EBT card benefits so they don’t have to rob people to buy their malt liquor and drugs. Also just providing a free cell phone and mass transit tokens is not going far enough, we should give them cars.

  11. beacuseihadto says:

    can anyone say run a train …….woo woo

  12. not racism the truth says:

    Cry me a river Trisha S. They all come from Chicago for our welfare. Racism my fanny. What is outrages?

  15. Dave says:

  16. stinky says:
