Alleged Intruder, Homeowner Charged in Deadly Weslaco Robbery Attempt, 1 Wanted
WESLACO – Two people are now charged in a deadly robbery attempt in Weslaco.
The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office says it was a home invasion to steal drugs and money.
Now, one of the invaders and the homeowner are behind bars. A third person who was part of the robbery has a warrant for his arrest, 30-year-old Isidro Rubiel Juarez.
The homeowner, Jonathon Gonzalez, was charged with failure to report a felony that resulted in serious bodily harm and for tampering with physical evidence.
Gonzalez also shot and killed one of the intruders, Emanuel Alvarado, but is not being charged with murder.
Instead Alvarado’s brother is, Noel Alvarado. Noel also trespassed into the home early Tuesday morning.
“My brother and I were invited by a person to enter a house. When we entered that house, my brother was shot by the person inside the house. I never shot my brother. Never,” said Noel in court.
Authorities are asking if anyone has any information regarding the case, call Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers at 956-668-8477.
