A suspect wanted in the Thursday armed robbery of a Richardson bank turned himself in to Slaton Police Saturday.

31 year-old Guadalupe Fajardo is now being held in the Lubbock County Jail on charges out of Richardson. The FBI believes Fajardo is a member of the "Take Over Bandits." The gang is suspected in dozens of bank holdups since 2002. The most recent happened Thursday at the American First National Bank in Richardson.

Police say three men walked into the bank wearing masks and carrying automatic weapons. They ordered everyone to the floor and went for the vault and teller drawers. They then fled the scene, but with police on their tails. The chase led to a multi-car wreck with the robbery suspects firing at police cars. Shortly afterwards, the bandits carjacked a vehicle and later abandoned it. No one suffered any severe injuries but five police cars were damaged.

The FBI got a lead in the case Friday when two of the suspects were identified as 31-year-olds Guadalupe Fajardo and Douglas Ybarra. Both men face charges of aggravated robbery and attempted capital murder.

According to Slaton Police, Fajardo turned himself in around noon Saturday. He told police there was a misunderstanding and wanted to clear it up, but was then taken into custody.

Now, the FBI continues its search for the other two suspects.
