Two teenagers, William Arredondo, Jr., and Ty Myers have pleaded not guilty in connection to multiple robberies in Pea Ridge, Arkansas. Arredondo, 17, from Rogers, and Myers, 16, from Garfield, were arrested for aggravated robbery and theft of property by threat of serious physical injury. The charges stem from an incident on April 13, where the victim, a juvenile, was lured out of a vehicle at Baker Hayes Urban Trailhead. Arredondo and Myers allegedly held a gun to the victim’s head, demanding his shoes, cell phone, and belongings. The victim was left uninjured.
Additionally, the two teenagers were arrested for another aggravated robbery related to an incident on May 6. Despite being minors, Arredondo and Myers have been publicly identified as they have been booked and charged as adults.
Both teenagers are scheduled for omnibus hearings on September 5 in Benton County.
