TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Tyler police say they have identified all three suspects involved in an armed convenience store robbery.

The first, Francisco Vallejo, 21, of Tyler, has been arrested on a charge of aggravated robbery and is currently held on a $750,000 bond in the Smith County jail. Police say that Vallejo and his two alleged accomplices -- both currently unnamed -- were responsible for holding a Valero clerk at gunpoint while demanding cash earlier this week.

A warrant for aggravated robbery has been issued for the second suspect. The third suspect, while identified, has not had a warrant issued for their arrest yet.
