December 31, 2017

 

EAGLE PASS, Maverick County, Texas -- An alleged armed robber was arrested by Eagle Pass Police Department officers late last week. 

 

Sergio Mendez, 20, is facing charges of armed robbery and evading arrest after police say he held a convenience store cashier at gunpoint while demanding money. 

 

The incident happened Thursday at a locally-owned store on El Indio Hwy. 

 

Mendez, who was only able to take $22 in the botched robbery, was caught by police a few blocks from the convenience store. 

 

He was transported to the Tom Bowles Detention Center.
