Three people accused of working together to rob a man working on remodeling an auto parts store were arrested this week.

The incident happened around 4 p.m. Dec. 17 at the O’Reilly Auto Parts store at 1801 Trawood Drive.

Police said Eric Abraham Moreno, 26, and Miles Carolton Edmondson, 20, approached a man who was working on a remodeling job at the store.

The two demanded the victim’s phone and made a gesture that suggested they had a weapon, police said.

The man handed over his phone and the two also grabbed a vehicle part from the store, police said.

The two got into a getaway car driven by Ruben Villalobos, 36, and fled the scene, police said.

Police identified the subjects and warrants were issued for their arrests for robbery, officials said.

Edmondson was booked into the county jail on a $55,000 bond, while Moreno had a $75,000 bond and Villalobos had a $100,000 bond.
