Two arrested in Parker County armed robbery

Two men were arrested in a Parker County aggravated robbery case yesterday, and they were found, in part, because one of the men has a profile on Facebook.

We told you yesterday about the Monday night robbery, where a man asked a woman if he could use her phone, and then returned with another man to hold her up at gunpoint, searched her house for cash, and then ran away into some woods nearby.

The victim’s family members looked up the number dialed from her phone on FaceBook, identifying "Diamond Castillo," as the man who had used her phone. Sheriff’s investigators identified the suspect as 18-year-old Diamond Anthony Salinas. The second man was identified as 20-year-old Tyler Wayne Tice.

The Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team located both suspects, who were arrested in less than 24 hours of the incident.

Salinas and Tice were both charged with first-degree felony aggravated robbery. Their bond has not been set.
