Police said three people arrested Monday after a robbery and subsequent pursuit may be involved in a number of holdups targeting grocery and convenience store gaming areas.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, officers arrested Darian Owens, 25; Precious Carroll, 24; and Tevin Owens, 21.

Police said the three were arrested after officers responded to an armed robbery at a business in the 7100 block of West Craig Road. Metro used patrol and air units to identify and locate the vehicle involved in the holdup.

After arresting the two men and one woman, police said they recovered a stolen firearm used in the robbery as well as money and clothing linking the three to several past robberies that took place in June.

According to Metro, at least 12 robberies were committed in June by the same group of suspects throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Police said the vehicle they followed on Monday matched the same one seen on a surveillance video from an Aug. 19 holdup in the 4400 block of North Jones Boulevard.

Police were able to find other evidence at a safe house linking the three people to the holdups.

Police did not specify whether the Aug. 20 early morning holdup at a Smith's gaming area in west Las Vegas was among the robberies including in the crime spree.

Police said each suspect was booked into Clark County Detention Center on counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit burglary.

Metro scheduled a 3 p.m. news conference on Tuesday at its headquarters to provide additional details of the crimes.
