Man Arrested in Connection With Hobbs Armed Robbery

A man has been arrested in connection to an armed robbery.

The robbery happened at Hastings Entertainment in Hobbs, New Mexico.

The man has been identified as former Hastings employee, Alejandro Castillo.

Last Friday, Castillo stayed in a storage room after closing hours.

Once a store employee made her way to the storage room, Castillo took her to the women's restroom, duct taped her to a bar in a stall.

Castillo then brought another employee into the restroom by gunpoint.

We're told Castillo took more than $4,900 in cash and store merchandise.

Both employees were found uninjured.
