    A Florida woman was arrested after authorities say she brought her two babies to an armed robbery.

    Alaina Danielle Johnson, 20, was arrested on a charge of robbery with a firearm in the Wednesday morning incident in Ocala, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.


    According to the sheriff's office, Johnson, along with 18-year-old Matthew Allison Thomas and a 17-year-old, took cash, marijuana and a paintball gun during the robbery at a home along Northeast 13th Street.

    Johnson arrived at the home with two babies in her truck, the sheriff's office said. The victims said Thomas and the 17-year-old robbed them at gunpoint, sometimes pointing the gun directly at the head of one of the victims, authorities said.

    Deputies found all three suspects after one of the victims recognized Johnson, the sheriff's office said.

    Johnson and Thomas were being held on $50,000 bond each and it was unknown whether they have attorneys. The 17-year-old was being held without bond at a juvenile detention center.

    The robbery is still being investigated.
