Tucson police yesterday arrested a man who they believe robbed five banks.

Anthony Rodriguez, 28, was taken into custody during a traffic stop near South Country Club Road and Aviation Parkway, said Sgt. Judy Altieri, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

The Tucson man was booked into the Pima County Jail on three counts of robbery, she said.

He has been charged in robberies Aug. 26 at Wells Fargo, 5310 E. Grant Road; Sept. 19 at Bank One, 2645 N. Campbell Ave.; and Oct. 10 at Bank of America, 2885 N. Campbell Ave.

Rodriguez has also been charged in an Oct. 8 attempted robbery at Wells Fargo, 555 N. Wilmot Road, and two counts of armed robbery from bank robberies in 2000, Altieri said.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
