A man and a woman are in custody in connection with a home invasion robbery Nov. 29 in Clovis, police report.
Gary Banks, 25, was arrested Wednesday and Maribel Joachin, 27, was arrested Jan. 6, police spokeswoman Janet Stoll-Lee said.
The robbery began when a man living in the 1800 block of Cougar Lane solicited a prostitute to come to his house, Stoll-Lee said. The woman who went to the home tricked the homeowner into letting in two men. The three then took property and a car from the victim.
Detectives learned the woman lived south of Fresno and they recovered a computer and other items taken from the home, Stoll-Lee said.

Joachin was arrested at a pizza restaurant at Cedar Avenue and Kings Canyon Road. Banks was arrested when he checked in with his probation officer on his last day of probation.
Other items taken from the victim’s home were found at Banks home, Stoll-Lee said.
The second man sought in the crime remains at large.
