LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Three people are behind bars Friday night after police say an employee of Taco Villa helped his friends rob the store at gunpoint last month.

17-year-old Brittany Higgins, 20-year-old Dodson Smith, and 20-year-old Diondre Bell have all been arrested and charged with aggravated robbery.

Bell is a Taco Villa employee and was there at the time.

Police say three employees were in the process of closing the Taco Villa near 50th and Quaker just after 11 p.m. Bell was one of those employees.

Another employee propped the back door open so they could throw trash away.

That's when two suspects entered the restaurant.

The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money from the register and fled on foot.

Police say they linked the suspects to Bell by his Facebook page.
