A bank robbery suspect remains behind bars under a $101,000 bond after facing a judge in Harlingen.
Harlingen police arrested Joe Wayne Galipp on a robbery charge early Monday afternoon.
Galipp is accused of robbing the Bank Of America in downtown Harlingen.
Police officers arrested him blocks away with $8,260 in stolen cash.
Galipp appeared before a Harlingen Municipal Court on Tuesday morning where he was issued a $101,000 bond.
Court records show Galipp was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a 1993 robbery but was paroled in February 2011.
Harlingen police said they will submit the case to federal prosecutors because bank robbery is a federal crime.
