CARSON CITY, NEV. — Two suspects were arrested Wednesday in the robbery of a 100-year-old Carson City veteran at his home over the Memorial Day weekend.

Detectives with the sheriff’s office arrested Jordan Burkhart, 24, of Wellington, authorities said Wednesday.

A second suspect, Robert “Robbie” Michael Hernandez, 27, of Carson City, was arrested in Sparks, the sheriff’s office said.

Hernandez attempted to flee through residential areas, but was taken into custody by Sparks police officers after a short vehicle pursuit, followed by a foot chase, the sheriff’s office said.

No injuries were reported.

Bail was set at $250,000 for each of the suspects, who face multiple charges, the sheriff’s office said.
