Three Big Spring residents are in custody and charged with aggravated robbery after a alert police officer spied the vehicle in which they were traveling and executed a traffic stop.
Arrested were 21-year-old Eufemio Ortiz, a black male; 25-year-old Sunday Luna, a white male; and 28-year-old Ashley Luna, a white female. All three were booked into the county detention center.
According to police records, at 6:34 p.m. Thursday officers were informed of an apparent robbery at Boost Mobile, 406 E. Marcy. Officers learned that a black male allegedly entered the business armed with a handgun and robbed two employees. Witnesses told officers the suspect was seen entering a maroon Buick which was missing door molding on the rear driver's side door.
â€śOfficer Mike Calley observed a vehicle matching that description leaving a convenience store in the 3300 block of E. FM 700,â€ť said Sgt. Tony Everett, Big Spring Police Department public information officer. â€śCalley activated his overhead lights and stopped the vehicle.â€ť
Everett said police Lt. Bob Fitzgibbons arrived on the scene and the officers removed three suspects. Officers recovered a gun and money from the robbery and a purse that had been taken from one of the victims.
