The FBI has arrested the man they believe is the Mesh Mask Bandit.  59 year old Luis Delagarza was taken into custody at his Farmers Branch home.  

Investigators believe his is responsible for 19 bank robberies over the past seven months.

FBI officials say an employee at a Wells Fargo Bank in Farmers Branch saw the armed robber’s face as he put on the mask before entering the bank April 22nd and again as he left removing the mask. The witness later identified Delagarza in a photo lineup.

A federal judge today ordered him to remain in custody until a hearing Tuesday.
