Two arrested in aggravated robbery in Andrews

Andrews County Sheriff's Office

At approximately 4:12pm on February 25, 2019, the Andrews County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a possible robbery.

Norma Beltran was coming into Andrews on South US-385 and ran out of gas when she began walking into town. A male and female subject in a black pickup stopped and asked if she needed help. They took her to the Love’s to get fuel. They left her there on the premise of getting a gas can, then they returned to give her a ride back to her car.

Instead of returning her to her vehicle, they took her out onto a county road, pointed a gun at her, and forced her to give them her cell phone, credit card, and money. They then left her stranded. While officers were attempting to locate the suspect vehicle, another call was received that the stolen credit card was being used at a local convenience store.

A short time later, a City of Andrews employee spotted the suspect vehicle and followed it to a residence. Andrews Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the residence, where they located the suspect vehicle and suspects, Ray Don Sword, 42 and Kristi Salinas, 40. Both subjects were arrested and charged with Aggravated Robbery.

A search warrant was obtained and executed at the residence, where evidence of the crime was recovered.
