Two people were arrested in an armed robbery incident in LaPorte this week.
The pair, Giancarlo Pons, 21, and Kevin Pons, 20, of LaPorte, entered the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Pine Lake Avenue, went into the office area and allegedly stole a large amount of money while pointing a handgun at employees. The brothers fled the store on foot.
The LaPorte County K9 was able to track the suspects to the former Allis-Chalmers within minutes. Officers took both of them into custody and transported them to the LaPorte County Jail without incident. No injuries were reported.
A preliminary charge of armed robbery has been filed against both Giancarlo and Kevin Pons.
