RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The suspect in an armed robbery that occurred early this year at a Chevron in Incline Village was found guilty on four felony counts by a Washoe District Court jury on September 11, 2013.

Jorge Miranda-Rivas, a resident of Incline Village, was found guilty on one count each of Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, Discharging a Weapon from within a Structure, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Grand Larceny of an Automobile for his part in the robbery which occurred on January 2, 2013 at the Chevron on Tahoe Boulevard.

Deputies say Miranda-Rivas entered the Chevron his face masked by a bandana, and wearing a heavy jacket and hood. He demanded money from the clerk, struck the clerk, discharged a revolver inside the store and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. There were no other patrons in the store at the time of the robbery.

A Washoe County Sheriff’s Office investigation led to the arrest of Miranda-Rivas and two juvenile suspects on January 10, 2013. A fourth suspect, Jorge Torres, was arrested in June. T

Miranda-Rivas is scheduled to be sentenced on November 7, 2013 and faces prison sentences for each of the four felony convictions.
