The third and final suspect wanted in connection with a Porter home invasion robbery in January has been taken into custody.

U.S. Marshals arrested Eugene Rogers May 14 in Kansas City, Missouri, according to the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office. Rogers was reportedly loading a U-haul to head to Texas when he was captured.

The Sheriff's Office had been looking for Rogers in connection with a Jan. 11 break-in at a home in Porter. Deputies said three men forced their way inside and tied up a 13-year-old boy before stealing several guns and other valuable items. The boy inside the home was shaken up but unharmed.

The first suspect, Aaron Johnson, was arrested less than a week after the crime. Eugene Brown Jr. was arrested Feb. 15 during a traffic stop in Tulsa. The Sheriff's Office says Rogers is Brown's father.

"I want to appreciate the outpouring of the public in their concern for this traumatized 13-year-old boy, who will always have the nightmare of that day." Sheriff Elliott said in a press release. "Because of the media and the concerned public, these violent offenders have been hunted down and arrested. Thank you."

The three men face first-degree burglary and kidnapping charges.
