Suspected bank robber arrested

Police have made an arrest on one of the two suspects who allegedly robbed the IBC Bank inside Wal-Mart on Highway 83 back in 2007.

Police arrested 51-year-old Jorge Perez Napoles, one of the suspects accused of carjacking a man and leading police on a chase to the river banks.

A police cruiser was shot at during the chase, but the officer was not injured.

The suspects ran the truck into the Rio Grande, and then swam across the river into Mexico with the stolen cash.

Authorities believe Napoles may have also robbed the Laredo National Bank in Mall del Norte earlier that year.
