Cambara overheard the conversation, became jealous, and decided to rob Grisales by getting Lemus to lure him to a McDonald’s in Riverhead, prosecutors said.

When Grisales arrived, prosecutors said, Lemus got into his pickup truck and the two drove to a nearby buffalo farm, where Cambara and two accomplices were waiting.
