Gas station robbery-spree suspect arrested

Man found with guns, heroin


SAN ANTONIO – A man suspected of robbing five San Antonio gas stations was arrested Thursday by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and found in possession of heroin, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

On July 10, Marshall Aponte, 19, went to several gas stations with two hand guns and demanded money from the cashiers, police said.

Thursday, task force officers saw Aponte leave his apartment complex in the 11800 block of West Avenue, followed him to a nearby gas station, and arrested him. He had a hand gun and illegal drugs on him.

Aponte is being held in the Bexar County Jail on a $1,500 bond for possession of heroin and a $100,000 bond for aggravated robbery.
