Two men are behind bars after being accused of storming a Brownsville 8-liner arcade armed with guns and robbing it.
Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said it happened just at a game room off McKenzie and La Palma Drives on Sunday.
Suspects Jose Luis Orta and Elias Casanova allegedly entered the game room at about 11 a.m. Sunday.
The two men allegedly had a small handgun and demanded money.
Sheriff Lucio said the men made off with about $800 dollars.
Border Patrol agents helped find the red getaway vehicle on Highway 48 just 30 minutes after the hold up.
Authorities are looking into the possibility of these men involved in other robberies.
