Castillo is accused of robbing the Culebra Meat Market in the 2800 block of Culebra Road at about 11:30 a.m. with the assistance of another suspect. They stormed into the store, demanded money from the cashier and fled in a vehicle, police said.
According to a preliminary police report of the robbery, Castillo likely dropped off the second suspect before he was located by robbery detectives and a helicopter unit.

The second robber remains at large.
