Teen Suspect In An Armed Robbery In Cottonwood Has Been Arrested

Cottonwood Police say a 14-year-old suspect wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a gas station earlier this month has been arrested. Yavapai Apache Tribal Police, along with Clarkdale and Jerome police, arrested Marcelino “Danny” Baltazar on Sunday. Back on January 7th, officers responded to the Speedway station in the 900-block of South Main Street. Two men entered the store, both armed with semi-automatic handguns and robbed the attendant of an undisclosed amount of money and fled. Arrested were 21-year-old Antwon Gyce and 22-year-old Anthony Green, both from Clarkdale. They have been booked on charges of armed robbery, assault and theft and are being held in the Yavapai County Jail on $50-thousand dollars bond each. Baltazar was booked into the Yavapai County Juvenile Detention Center also on charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and theft.
