Authorities dubbed him the "boomerang bandit". Now the man wanted in connection to two El Paso bank robberies has been arrested on separate robbery charges in Arizona.
Investigators in Sonora, Mexico picked up 40-year-old Raul Gallegos yesterday afternoon. He was then transferred to Arizona where he was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshalls.
Gallegos, who is a U.S. citizen, was arrested for five bank robberies in various parts of Arizona. He has not been charged for the ones he's suspected of committing in El Paso.
