A teen wanted in connection with an armed robbery and kidnapping in November turned himself in to authorities Wednesday.

Israel Godoy, 16, is facing unlawful means of transport, theft of means of transport, armed robbery, aggravated robbery, two counts of kidnapping and burglary, said Deputy Courtney Rodriguez, a sheriff's spokeswoman.

Godoy is being charged as an adult because of the seriousness of the crime, and was booked into the Pima County jail, Rodriguez said.

Deputies are still searching for Enrique Durazo, 17, in connection with the Nov. 29 incident at a Circle K at 4605 W. Valencia Road, said Rodriguez.

Godoy and Durazo are alleged suspects in the carjacking and kidnapping of a woman who was putting gasoline in her vehicle at the Circle K, said Rodriguez.

The 54-year-old victim was released about 1 1/2 miles away from the convenience store, and Godoy and Durazo left in her vehicle.

The vehicle was later found abandoned in a wash, she said.  

Durazo frequents Tucson's southwest side and uses public transportation, Rodriguez said.

Detectives believe Durazo may be staying with friends for a couple of nights at a time.

Durazo has a tattoo of "AZ" on his left hand, and "Durazo" on his back. He may be wearing gauges in his ears. He has brown hair and eyes, and is 5 feet 11 inches tall. He weighs 175 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911, 88-CRIME or a lead investigator in the case at 351-6461.
