RENO, Nev.- Reno Police have arrested three people for armed robbery but a fourth suspect is still on the loose.

It happened around 2:40 a.m. Mon., when four suspects approached two men walking on Baker Ln. in South Reno.

According to police, four men got out of a white Honda and threatened the two victims at gun-point demanding their wallets. One of the victims fled but was chased by two of the suspects. The other victim handed over his wallet to the other two suspects. The suspects removed money from the wallet and took off in their car.

Approximately fifteen minutes later, a Reno police officer located a white Honda occupied by four men heading north on Holcomb Ave. near Pueblo St.

When police pulled the car over, one of the men fled from the car, the other three men were detained.

During the investigation police recovered a firearm inside the car, and the victim’s money, which was in the possession of one of the defendants.

Police also found evidence from another pedestrian robbery reported last Friday, May 18th, in the South Meadows area of Reno. The investigation into that robbery is ongoing.

Floyd Vorice, 21, William Tripp, 21, and Elisha Kelly, 22, were all arrested and charged with Robbery with the Use of a Deadly Weapon and Conspiracy to Commit Robbery.

The fourth suspect is described as a white male 20-25 years of age, 5’5”–5’8” tall, and 160-180 pounds last seen wearing a blue T-shirt with logo on the front and blue jeans.
