“Immediately he contacted 911 and radio dispatch relayed the message and we were able to detain the vehicle along Stuart Place Road,” Primera Police Chief Manuel Trevino said. “Once they were detained we escorted two of the suspects the victim had described and he was able to identify them and the getaway vehicle.”

The suspects were charged with participating in organized crime.

“I am very proud of my officers and thankful for the sheriff officers,” Trevino said.

The two adults were identified as Francisco Trevino and Jesus Alejandro Macias. They are accused of robbing a home on the 600 block of Barger Street along with the minor, who was not identified.
