An Alabama man is in big trouble after a brief standoff with police in Pecos last week.

30-year old Jason Gilliland was arrested at the Motel Six after a two and a half hour stand off after he allegedly robbed the Sun Mart Texaco in Wickett.

Authorities say Gilliland was accompanied by two girls, ages 14 and 16, believed to be runaways from Alabama.

According to Ward County deputies, Gilliland held up the Texaco for about one hundred-30 bucks.

Gilliand could also face federal charges, including sexual assault and for taking minors across state lines.
