When a loss prevention officer approached them, Tapia allegedly threatened to “start blasting people,” and the pair got away. Then in April, the criminal complaint states Gonzales shot toward store workers who were trying to stop her and Tapia from taking items from Sam’s Club on north Coors.
No one was hit. They were both arrested earlier this month and their arraignment is set for Monday.
