RALEIGH — Two roommates were being held Thursday on half-million-dollar bonds and immigration detention requests after police arrested the men on charges of carrying out a gunpoint car theft and robbery Nov. 1.
Sergio Lopez Reyna, 25, and Victor Hugo Arriaga, 26, both listed 5125-A2 New Hope Road in Raleigh as their addresses when officers brought them to the detective division headquarters on Atlantic Avenue.
Shortly before midnight, police took out arrest warrants charging Reyna and Arriaga were the men who brandished a stolen .380-caliber handgun and threatened two men before making off with a red 2003 Chevrolet Envoy, a mans gold ring and a wallet.
Reyna and Arriaga, who are both natives of Mexico, were being held on a request from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials for 48 hours to check the mens legal status in the United States.
An arrest warrant charges Reyna with possession of a stolen firearm, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiring with Arriaga to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree kidnapping.
Arriaga faces counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiring with Renya to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree kidnapping.
The kidnapping counts involve moving someone from one place to another without the victims consent.
Renyas bail was set at $550,000. Arriagas was set at $500,000.
