PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Three men charged in more than a dozen armed robberies in Allegheny, Indiana and Westmoreland counties were in court Tuesday.

Keith Lamont Fields, 22; Louis Angelo Rice, 24, – both from Pittsburgh – and 22-year-old Gerald Howard Davis, of Monroeville, are facing charges in 13 armed robberies between November of 2011 and this March.

Milton Raiford, the defense attorney for two of the suspects, says his clients have admitted to committing several of the robberies.

“To be contrite and to be accountable and to show the police where the guns are that they used, it’s a step, albeit a small step compared to the damage that they caused,” he said.

Police say the suspects got away with thousands of dollars in their robberies.

“People do some stupid things when they’re desperate for money and about the time they were doing this, there was, they were probably obviously not in their right mind, so there were probably some drugs involved in terms of the usage,” Raiford said.

All three suspects were in court. Their hearings were moved to the first week in April so witnesses from around the area can attend.
