Crime Stoppers tip leads to arrest of robbery suspect

Luis Trevino accused of robbing 2 businesses

SAN ANTONIO – Luis Trevino, 25, is believed to be the man captured by surveillance cameras during a robbery at a West Side convenience store. San Antonio police have arrested him in connection with that crime as well as an aggravated robbery at a nearby bakery.

They said a tip called in to their Crime Stoppers line help them identify Trevino.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that police aired the images on local TV stations after someone robbed a clerk at Save and Smile Food Mart on Enrique Barrera Parkway June 18.

They said the man in the surveillance photos had made a purchase first, then pulled out a gun and demanded cash from the register.

On June 22, a man, using the same approach, robbed a worker at La Popular Bakery in the 4200 block of Culebra Road, the affidavit stated.

Police said after the photos aired on TV, they received a tip identifying Trevino as the man who was caught on camera.

The affidavit stated that investigators later put Trevino's mug shot into a photo lineup and one of the victims identified him as the man who robbed him.

Trevino was booked into the Bexar County jail Wednesday on two counts of aggravated robbery.
