Three California teens were involved in a rollover crash moments after four attempted robberies in Tempe. 

Tempe police say the crash happened around 5 a.m. on October 20 near Mill Avenue and Apache Boulevard. 

According to police, Darrell Aundra Crowder, Anthony Washington and Desmond Talley, all 18, came to Tempe from California to watch the ASU-Stanford Football game on October 18 at Sun Devil Stadium. 

Police received a call just before 5 a.m. when the trio allegedly used a sledgehammer to break the window of a Cold Stone Creamery near McClintock Drive and Southern Avenue. 

They reportedly broke a cash register and stole the money inside. 

They then allegedly robbed the Jimmy John's near Baseline Road and Rural Road. A witness reported to police that they saw a suspect get into a white Nissan Altima. 

Within minutes of responding to the Jimmy John's break-in, an officer saw someone using a sledgehammer to try to break into the Fry's store near Mill and Southern avenues. 

The trio fled and got into a crash with two other vehicles blocks away at Mill and Apache. The collision caused one of the vehicles to roll over, pinning a victim under their vehicle. 

That person has been taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. 

The teens are also accused of robbing a Smashburger and Caribbean Palm, also in Tempe. 

The trio has been charged with multiple crimes including, burglary, aggravated assault, and endangerment.
