Two men and a juvenile arrested after convenience store robbery

Two adults and one juvenile were arrested last week after allegedly robbing a local convenience store.

Lucas Marshall Partain, 21, Joseph Tomas Nelson, 18, and an unnamed 17-year-old juvenile were arrested on the same preliminary charges, including robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary while in possession of a gun, conspiracy to commit robbery and petit larceny for the alleged incident.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Horizon Market at 840 E. Highway 372 for a report of an armed robbery.

The store clerk said two masked men entered the store and demanded money, while they confronted her with a gun.

The suspects stole cash and merchandise from the store and fled the scene on foot, the clerk said.

During the investigation, deputies reviewed the security camera footage and identified Partain as a conspirator and the 17-year-old as one of the robbers, resulting in the arrest of the pair.

Nelson was identified a short time later and apprehended as well. Partain and Nelson were booked into the Nye County Detention Center and are being held on $55,640 bond, while the 17-year-old was turned over to Nye County Juvenile Probation.

Anyone with additional information about this case is urged to contact the Nye County Sheriff’s Office at 775-751-7000.
