Two men were arrested for their alleged involvement in the January robbery of a bank customer, the state Attorney General’s office said.
The authorities said Miguel Angel, aka “Chicano,” and Carlos Oswaldo, aka “Estrella,” were indicted for the Jan. 4 robbery of a bank customer who was carrying at La Gran Vía shopping mall over half a million pesos or about $26,000 that belonged to a political party.
According to the agency, detectives and prosecutors found enough evidence to file a criminal complaint against the suspects for robbery.
The authorities said the suspects arrived at the scene in a Mazda. Then, the suspects brandished firearms to demand cash from the victims.
The suspects took the cash and a woman’s purse.
A third suspect was driving the Mazda, the agency said.
The authorities said the robbery gang, which was led by Miguel Angel, observed victims while arriving at automated teller machines and then chased them to commit the robberies.
The agency added that the suspects were allegedly involved in three robberies reported in October, November and March.
These three crimes left suspects with over 332,000 pesos or about $16,500. According to the report Estrella was apparently involved in crimes like robberies, possession of drugs and firearms, residential robberies and trespassing.
