LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Six people, including three juveniles, are behind bars, accused of carrying out at least nine armed robbery at Las Vegas area convenience stores across the valley, including a robbery that left a clerk with a gunshot wound, according to Las Vegas Police.
At a press conference Thursday, Las Vegas Metro Police Capt. David O’Leary announced the arrests in connection with the robbery series that started March 28 and continued into early June.
Three adults, including 19-year-old Kim Zenteno, 18-year-old Andrew Perez and 20-year-old Jacqueline Zambrano, face several felony charges, including attempted murder, robbery, burglary and conspiracy counts, O’Leary said. Three juveniles, two 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old, were also arrested and charged in the robberies.
