Two charged with aggravated robbery
Trinity Standard -

TRINITY — On Saturday, Nov. 9 around 1 pm the owner of the Gracie's One Stop Grocery on the corner of Hwy 94 and FM 356 reported someone stole a six-pack of beer. The store clerk reported the suspects left in a sliver Chrysler 300. Later in the day around 2:23 pm several complaints were made that the same suspects in the same silver Chrysler 300 stole money from the Trinity Peewee Football Team booth at the Trinity High School. An older gentleman tried to stop the vehicle as they left with the money, instead of stopping they continued with their vehicle toward the gentleman. The act of placing the gentleman's life in danger and/or causing serious bodily injury with their car, escalated the misdemeanor criminal charge of theft to felony aggravated robbery. The suspects were followed west on Hwy 94 to South Street, where they turned. The suspects were from the Coldspring area. It is believed the suspects turned on the wrong road, thinking they were turning onto FM 356. At the dead end of South Street, the suspects wrecked trying to turn around, and were then confronted by parents and participants of the Trinity Peewee Football Team. Several officers from different agencies responded and following an investigation into the events, two people were taken into custody on South Street. Bristine Jayroe (18 years old - Photo #2) and Nathan Kologinczak (21 years old - Photo #3) were both charged with felony aggravated robbery. Subsequent to the Aggravated Robbery arrest, officers located the owner of the vehicle, Rosa Lucia (23 years old - Photo #4) at the Trinity High School. When they found her she had been drinking, so they arrested and charged her with misdemeanor public intoxication. After locating Xanax pills hidden in Lucia's crotch area, she was also charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, in a drug free zone. The investigation was conducted by Officer Givens with the help of Constable Cole. Trinity PD also thanks Sheriff Wallace and Constable Casey for showing up to assist.
