Just minutes after the two men fled the scene, they were caught by Hidalgo County Sheriff’s officials.
Investigators say the robbery happened at a barbershop located on the 24000 block of Toucan Drive in a rural area of Edinburg on Tuesday afternoon.
According to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s office, Rico went inside with a shotgun and demanded money from customers and employees and took several items from the store.
Both are being held under a $250,000 bond. Officials say they could be involved in other crimes.
“Right now what we’re focused on is this robbery to see whether they’re involved in any other similar robberies in the area,” explained J.P. Rodriguez, Hidalgo county sheriff’s spokesperson.
All the stolen items were recovered and given back to their owners. No injuries are being reported.
