CORPUS CHRISTI -- Police arrested a 17 year old girl this morning for two armed robberies on the island.
Officers say the call came in at 5:54 a.m. about a female who walked into a Stripes off Whitecap and South Padre Island Drive and held the clerk up at gunpoint and demanded cash.
The girl left the store with the money and took off in her car. That store clerk told police her physical and suspect description. Police say the suspect didn't stop there, she made her way to another Stripes gas station on her way to Port Aransas.
Police say she robbed another clerk at the Stripes near Park Road 22. Police say the 17 year old held up that store at gunpoint also and left with more cash. The clerk at the second location was able to get most of her license plate number and officers arrested her shortly after the two armed robberies.
Miranda Garcia faces aggravated robbery charges. Authorities say the girl made off with about 8 bucks, but didn't get too far.
