March 4, 2021

Six people were arrested after a  home invasion in which one suspect was shot, and the homeowner’s granddaughter is accused of orchestrating the crime.

During the early morning hours Thursday, ECSO deputies were called to the 7400 block of Jackson Street.

According to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office suspects ran out of the home, drove away, and wrecked the car a few blocks away. Another vehicle pulled up to the crash site and drove away with both suspects inside. A short time later, two suspects were dropped off at a local hospital where deputies made contact.
The ECSO said  Tayari Crear and Jemarquz Cromwell were the two suspects who broke into the home. Cromwell was the suspect shot by the homeowner. Suspect Natalie Gagne was the person who picked up both Crear and Cromwell when they wrecked their vehicle.
Sheriff Chip Simmons said that earlier in the evening, Gagne, Crear,Dominique Gonzalez, Cromwell and Cynthia Register hatched a plan to rob Register’s own grandparent of money, after Register pitched the idea.
Register and Hochhalter were charged with principle to armed home invasion robbery. Gange, Crear, Gonzalez, and Cromwell were charged with armed home invasion robbery.

    A”good”girl does NOT rob her grandparents or help her friends do it. They may still love her but that doesn’t mean they love what she did. She needs to pay for her part and be taught a lesson about life…do the crime face the time….

    I taught THREE of these people arrested. I am a failure.

    “She’s a good girl.” You’re joking, right? Hatch a plan to rob your grandparents? Yes, she’s an awesome girl. Role model for today’s youth.

    @carrie glad her grandparents still love her, we a civilized community, don’t need to love her. We want to know we are safe and she is locked away. If she could do this to a family member, lord knows what she could do to us. Take out the trash.

    @Ben Watchin, she is a good girl. A lot has gone on in her life. We don’t know what changed in her. We are all heartbroken and shocked. We are a tight family and yes before covid we did spend the holidays together. Her grand parents have told her they still love her.

    I will be greatly surprised if any of them do any jail time

    Cynthia Register is such a fine, upstanding citizen. Not only does she rob her own Grandfather but sends her friends in to do it KNOWING THEY COULD BE KILLED. I pray they make an example out of her by putting her away.

    @Joshua, hopefully there’s not going to be a Thanksgiving dinner with any of that 6.

    I would be cautious of who she says she’s bringing to Thanksgiving dinner or if she says she’s gonna drop by for a visit in the future.
