Man Arrested In NLV Bank Robberies | News
LAS VEGAS -- North Las Vegas Police arrested a man in connection with two banks that were robbed earlier this month in the city.
Police arrested Daniel Cordova, 24, and booked him on four felony charges related to the robberies.
On June 18, a man entered a US Bank in the 2200 block of E. Lake Mead Boulevard and handed a teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and he ran out with an undisclosed sum of cash.
Five days later, a man matching the description from the first robbery entered a Wells Fargo just down the street from the US Bank and again demanded money.
This time, the teller alerted everyone in the bank to the robbery and the robber ran out without any money.
Based on evidence at the scene, police arrested Cordova a few hours later and was booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center. He faces a count of robbery and attempted robbery and two counts of burglary.
Police said Cordova was identified by people who identified him through TV news reports.
