Pueblo Police arrest 'pants on the ground' robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

Pueblo Police said officers arrested 26-year-old Jeremy Aragon, the man caught on surveillance video robbing a Family Dollar store in Pueblo while his pants were falling down.

The video of the robbery at the Family Dollar on 224 E. 4th St. went viral after a witness caught a man, later identified by police as Aragon, stealing speakers and took out her phone.

"I would have jumped in if I thought he was going to hurt her. I wanted to have my camera out there because police need evidence," said Marcie Story, the woman who shot the video. "He took her ring too. He had pulled it off her finger and her hands were all bloody."

Video of the robbery was watched more than 74,000 times according to Facebook soon after it was uploaded, helping police identify the suspect as 26-year-old Jeremy Aragon. 

In a Facebook post, Pueblo Police thanked the public for their help in identifying Aragon, leading to his arrest.
