Police apprehended on Monday two Victoria men and a teenage boy in connection to an armed robbery at a Victoria 7-11 convenience store a day earlier.

“Investigation revealed that a subject entered the location and brandished a handgun before stealing lottery tickets and cash,” according to a Victoria Police Department news release issued Thursday. “Security footage provided officers with a description of the offender who was suspected to have left in a black sedan.”

On Monday, deputies arrested Sonny Gieselhart, 19, and Angel Raz, 18, both of Victoria, after a reported shooting in the 1000 block of Manor Drive. Authorities arrested Raz and detained an unidentified 15-year-old Victoria boy at the boy’s home in connection to the shooting and robbery. Law enforcement arrested Gieselhart nearby after he ran from them.

Deputies initially pursued the trio because their vehicle matched the description of a vehicle involved in the robbery at the 7-11, 3302 Sam Houston Drive, according to police.

After their arrest, authorities obtained warrants for Gieselhart and Raz, charging them with aggravated robbery, deadly conduct and engaging in organized criminal activity.

Gieselhart remained jailed Thursday with bonds totaling $102,050.

Raz remained jailed Thursday with a $20,000 bond.
