Sheriff Tim Walker says a multi-agency operation intercepted several telephone calls indicating the suspects planned to launch their crime spree Monday.
Officers stationed along U.S. 50 spotted the two as they were allegedly en route to Cotopaxi to rob an unidentified store.
They were arrested without incident.
No names were released.
