Police responded to the Blue Elefante arcade located on East Business highway 77. Police say a male suspect entered the arcade dressed in all black with a bandana, hat and sunglasses. He took out a handgun and pointed the gun to the temple of an employee and forced her to walk to the back office. He then got away with about $3,000 dollars. Police searched the area around the arcade and found Miguel Antonio Tapia Jr. hiding inside a drainage pipe under a bridge.
He has been charged with aggravated robbery and is being held under a $25,000 dollar bond.
