SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A criminal trio wanted for a slew of charges is now behind bars.

Santa Fe detectives say 31-year-old Anthony Berrios-Espinosa, 24-year-old Anthony Chacon and 19-year-old Ashley Ritch were all part of a botched armed robbery attempt.

The incident happened last month at a Motel 6 on Cerrillos Road. Police say Ritch was near the getaway car when Berrios-Espinosa and Chacon tried to rob a construction worker at gunpoint in his hotel room.

Police say the man ended up chasing the robbers out of his room. They abandoned their escape car and took off on foot. All three were arrested and charged.
