For the second time in two days, a local bank has been robbed, but Saturday's robbery may have led to the arrest of Friday's suspect.

31 year-old Robert J. Campos was arrested less than 10 minutes after a robbery at Wells Fargo inside the United Supermarket at 82nd St. and Boston. Lubbock Police believe he is the man who robbed the bank just after 1:30 on Saturday.

Police say Campos displayed a note to the teller and threatened he had a gun, but did not show a weapon. He then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

A witness got the suspect vehicle's description and license plate number. Within minutes, police stopped the suspect vehicle at 80th St. and Avenue D. That's when Campos was taken into custody. Police recovered two demand notes and an undisclosed amount of money.

Now, police are not saying for sure whether or not this is the suspect from Friday's robbery, but they do say that there are very strong similarities between the two.

Similarities noted in both robberies include:

  • The clothing worn by the suspect
  • The vehicle description
  • The demand notes
  • The fact that there was no weapon displayed at either location

On Friday, the robber walked into the bank, wrote a note to the teller saying he had a gun, and demanded money. He then fled with cash.

Saturday's robbery at Wells Fargo was the seventh robbery in Lubbock this year.
