Additional arrests have been made in connection with a home-invasion robbery last month in Isla Vista.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office says the arrests of a minor and Gavin Rapin, 18, came Friday after search warrants were served at their San Francisco homes.

Authorities say it's believed they held people at gunpoint during a "targeted robbery" Nov. 18 at a home on the 6500 block of Sabado Tarde Road in Isla Vista.

During Friday's search, officials say items "related to the robbery" were found and booked as evidence.

A search was also done "at the home of the registered owner of the vehicle that was used to flee the area after the robbery," officials said in a press release, adding that person was not arrested.

Rapin and the minor are facing various charges including residential burglary, false imprisonment, robbery, and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Two other arrests were previously made in connection with the case.
