1 of 2 Women Wanted in Robbery Arrested
19-year-old wanted for convenience store theft jailed; her 38-year-old mom still on the loose.
Bethlehem police arrested a woman wanted for allegedly participating in an armed robbery of a SouthSide convenience store, while her mother, who is also wanted, remains at large, according to The Express-Times.
Tiana Nina Alvarado, 19, who lives on the 300 block of State Street, was arraigned Monday afternoon for robbery and related charges in the December 13 crime at the Noor Inc. Mini Mart, 418 E. Fourth St.
She was committed to prison in lieu of $35,000 bail, while her mother, Nina Morales, 38, and implicated in the same crime, remains on the loose. Police made an appeal to the public in January to help them find the women.
Their alleged accomplice, David Capelles, 52, was the first person arrested in the crime.
According to court records, Morales held a BB gun on a store clerk while Alvarado took $450 worth of cigarettes from behind the counter. Capelles was brandishing a baseball bat.
Court records say that Capelles told police that the clerk handed $7,200 cash to Morales, which the trio used to buy marijuana and alcohol.
