Police arrest bank robbery suspect

TUCSON - Police say a homeless man has been arrested in connection with two bank robberies in an eight-day span earlier this month.

Tucson police say 42-year-old Joe Fontes Gomez was booked Thursday into the Pima County Jail.

He's being held on suspicion of two counts of robbery.

A police officer on routine patrol Thursday spotted a man that matched the description of the robbery suspect.

He was detained and detectives say they were able to link him to the robberies at the National Bank of Arizona.

Police say Gomez is accused of robbing the downtown bank on Jan. 10 and Jan. 18.
