Deputies from the Pima County Sheriff's Department have arrested a suspect in connection to a home invasion from Saturday afternoon, according to Deputy Ryan Inglett, a spokesman for the department. 

21-year-old Christopher Rice has been arrested on multiple charges in connection to the incident. 

Inglett said at 1:40 p.m. deputies responded to the 6400 block of North Calle Lottie for a report of a home invasion. 

As deputies arrived, they learned a family returned home to find three men stealing items out of their home. The family immediately called 9-1-1. 

Detectives responded to the scene and learned through interviews with witnesses that at least two of suspects were armed with handguns and at least one shot was fired as they fled. 

Inglett said one of the suspects fled on foot and the other two fled in a white Mercedes sedan with white wheels and low profile tires. 

From an extensive search in the area, deputies located Rice. He was arrested for armed robbery, aggravated robbery, and first degree burglary. He is being held on a $50,000 secured bond. 

Rice was then booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Complex on those charges. 

Detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying the two suspects at large. 

Inglett said they are described as Hispanic men between 20 to 30 years of age with average builds. They should be considered to be armed and dangerous.
