Bank Robbery and High Speed Chase Lands One Man in Jail

One man is in police custody after attempting to rob a central Lubbock bank this afternoon.

The robber walked into the Wells Fargo bank at 50th Street and Quaker Avenue just before 2:30 this afternoon wearing a ski mask, and managed to escape with an undisclosed amount of cash. Nearby officers saw a car fitting the description of the suspect vehicle, a silver Ford Mustang, and began following them.

The chase reportedly had speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour down Slide Road. Officers managed to use spike strips to disable the tires on the suspect’s mustang, then arrested the man near New Home in Lynn County.

The suspect, 35-year-old Graciano Quezada, will be arraigned in Lynn County before being transported back to Lubbock. Exact charges have not been determined as of yet. No injuries were reported.
