CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A 27-year-old man has been returned to Carson City to face charges in the home invasion robbery of a 101-year-old veteran and his caretaker over Memorial Day weekend.

Robbie Hernandez of Carson City was arrested in Sparks on an unrelated charge and later identified as a suspect in the Carson City case.

The Nevada Appeal reports he was booked into the Carson City Jail and his bail was set at $1.25 million.

Authorities say Hernandez and 24-year-old Jordan Burkhart of Wellington forced their way into James Sorrentino's home looking for a safe, but Sorrentino doesn't have one. After ransacking the home, they fled with a wristwatch, pocketknife and wallet containing $30.

The two are charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, home invasion, assault and crimes committed against someone over 60.

Burkhart is also in custody at the Carson City Jail.

Sorrentino is a World War II Army Air Corps and Air Force veteran.
