Deputies say 18-year-old Jorge Miranda-Rivas and a pair of 17-year-old boys were arrested Thursday in connection with the Jan. 2 robbery at the Incline Village Chevron.
Detectives broke the case after determining it was similar to an armed robbery that occurred Dec. 30 at the Kings Beach Liquor Store. That theft remains under investigation by the Placer County (Calif.) Sheriff's Office.
All three have been charged in Washoe County with suspicion of robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, grand larceny of an automobile and conspiracy to commit grand larceny of an automobile.
Miranda-Rivas's bail is set at $82,500. The other two are in juvenile custody in Reno.
