Bond reduction denied for two McAllen mall robbery suspects
Judges have denied bond reduction for two McAllen robbery suspects.
On Thursday, a judge denied bond reduction for 28-year-old Jorge Angel Rodriguez Mejia, according to Hidalgo County court records.
On Wednesday, a judge denied bond reduction for 26-year-old Miguel Quintanilla-Cardenas.
Their bonds will remain at $210,000.
Mejia and Quintanilla-Cardenas are the only two of seven McAllen robbery suspects who have asked for a bond reduction so far, according to Hidalgo County District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez.
The seven Mexican nationals are accused of robbing a jewelry store at La Plaza Mall last month.
While all men were charged with aggravated robbery, five men also face a failure to identify charge.
They remain at the Hidalgo County jail on federal hold because of their immigration status.
