Twenty-year-old Manuel Balderas was arrested Thursday in Des Moines and was brought back to the Story County Jail. Seventeen-year-old Luis Cruz was arrested in May.

Police are still searching for 18-year-old Jacob Jimenez. If you see him, do not approach him because he may be dangerous. Call authorities right away.
