Lubbock Police Arrest Armed Robbery Suspect

One of Lubbock's most wanted men is now behind bars.

An anonymous tip led Lubbock Police to the Howard Johnson's Express on Avenue Q, where they arrested Anthony Soria, 27, around 10:00. They found Soria in room 145. He was armed, however, he was taken into custody without incident.

Detectives tell NewsChannel 11 that they have confirmed that Soria robbed the Lone Wolf Café on 19th street Friday afternoon. They have also tied him to robberies at FootQuarters on south Quaker Avenue, a One Stop convenience store on north University, and the Montelongo pool.

Police add that Soria is also suspected to be behind several other robberies in town, including the robbery of a Long John Silvers restaurant on Saturday.

Soria is charged with possession of narcotics, possession of a firearm and aggravated kidnapping, but police say they are still looking into the kidnapping charge.

NewsChannel 11 is continuing to follow this story, and we'll keep you posted on the developments.
