Suspect in 2 Tucson bank robberies is in custody

TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a homeless man has been arrested in
connection with two Tucson 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.

Gomez didn’t have an attorney as of Thursday afternoon.
