2 men arrested in robbery of 100-year-old veteran

Two people have been arrested in the robbery of a 100-year-old Carson City veteran at his home over the Memorial Day weekend.

Authorities say two men forced their way into Jim Sorrentino's home on Sunday looking for a non-existent safe. Sorrentino says they fled with a wristwatch, pocketknife and wallet with about $30 in it.

One of the men, 27-year-old Robert Hernandez, was arrested Wednesday on a probation violation. Authorities say he later was identified as a suspect in the robbery.

The second man, 24-year-old Jordan Burkhart, was picked up by police in Sparks after a short foot chase.

Bail for the men has been set at $250,000 each.

Sorrentino lives alone with a caretaker in a gated community. Authorities say the caretaker was held at gunpoint during the robbery.
