Pueblo CO April 27 2012 Three people were arrested Monday following a robbery at J.C. Penney, 3301 Dillon Drive.
Christina R. Aleman, 26, Julian A. Gutierrez, 23, and Paul Sierra Jr., 21, each were arrested on suspicion of robbery.
Aleman also was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession.
According to an affidavit by Pueblo police officer Darren Kochis, the males paid Aleman to steal items for them at the department store.
The trio, along with Aleman’s young son, went to the store and were caught stealing at 7:54 p.m., the affidavit said.
As the group was leaving the store, they were confronted by security officers. The affidavit said Gutierrez punched one of the security officers and he, Sierra and Aleman’s child escaped in a green Nissan Pathfinder. Aleman was left behind.
The vehicle soon was located outside a vacant home in the 2600 block of Grand Avenue. The home belongs to a relative of Sierra.
The duo was found inside the home without Aleman’s child. The affidavit didn’t say what had happened to the child.
Sierra, of the 1800 block of Jones Avenue, was released on $35,000 bail.
Gutierrez, of Colorado Springs, and Aleman, of the 1000 block of Rice Avenue, each were being held in Pueblo County jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.
