Trinity police arrested three people following the theft of a six-pack of beer from a convenience store and cash from a football team booth Saturday afternoon.

According to a press release, the owner of Gracie's On Stop Grocery, located on the corner of State Highway 94 and FM 356, reported that someone had stolen a six-pack of beer around 1 p.m. They said the suspects left in a silver Chrysler 300.

Around 2:23 p.m., police received reports that the suspects then stole money from the Trinity Peewee football team booth at Trinity High School. They also put an elderly man's life in danger with their vehicle when he tried to stop them.

Parents of the players followed them west on Highway 94 to South Street, where they turned, apparently thinking they were turning onto FM 356. At the dead end of South Street, they wrecked trying to turn around.

The parents confronted the suspects and officers from different agencies responded and arrested Bristine Jayroe, 18, and Nathan Kologinczak, 21, on charges of aggravated robbery.

Officers then located the owner of the vehicle, Rosa Lucia, 23, at the high school. She was found to be intoxicated and arrested for public intoxication. She was also charged with possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone after officers found Xanax pills hidden in her crotch area, according to police.
