FBI arrests suspect in 2 Bank of ABQ robberies


RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – The FBI has arrested a young Rio Rancho man in connection to a pair of recent bank robberies.

Investigators say 21-year-old Joshua Abeyta is the man seen on surveillance cameras robbing the Bank of Albuquerque branch inside the Albertson’s Tuesday morning on Coors and Seven Bar Loop.
