WELLS — Deputies arrested a man Sunday who they believe robbed the Sinclair gas station in Wells at gunpoint on Friday, said Elko County Sheriff Jim Pitts.

The man handed the cashier a note that said, "give me all your money I have a gun," and flashed a hand gun under his jacket, Pitts said, before leaving with the cash from the register.

Jason Avila, 37, was arrested by White Pine Sheriff's deputies Sunday morning at a gas station where he and an accomplice stopped, Pitts said.

Avila was transferred and booked into Elko County Jail Sunday afternoon.


Updated 12:30 p.m. Monday to reflect correct offense, arrest and booking times.
