Three gang members were arrested Friday on suspicion of robbing two automotive businesses in east-central Fresno, police said.

Sgt. Pete Boyer of the Fresno Police Department said that Angel Cordova, 21, was arrested while leaving one of the unidentified businesses in the 1300 block of North Rowell Avenue. An investigation led police to a home on 1313 N. Rowell Ave., where they arrested Luis Cordova, 24, and Frank Castillo, 22. Police also found a stolen vehicle and an illegally modified shotgun in addition to the stolen property from the businesses.

All three were booked into Fresno County Jail on charges of commercial burglary and weapons charges. Boyer said that all stolen property was photographed and returned to the owners.
