LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Two women who police say robbed a west Lubbock gas station back in April are now behind bars.

With help from the public, police say they were able to arrest 39-year-old Latasha Lewis and 42-year-old Rachel Johnson.

The robbery happened at the Valero on 34th and Quaker back on April 22.

A security image taken by station cameras eventually led to their arrests.

Police say Johnson walked into the store with a rifle, and demanded cash from the register.

Police say Lewis was the getaway driver.

Both Lewis and Johnson were indicted on aggravated robbery charges.

They are each being held on a $100,000 dollar bond.
