August 19, 2016 Today, 45-year-old Jorge Martin Felix was arrested in connection with two bank robberies at the Wells Fargo inside a Safeway store at 2940 West Valencia Road. Following a media release, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department received multiple citizen tips that shed some light on the case. With this new information, and investigative follow-up, detectives were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Mr. Felix. The case was turned over to the Fugitive Investigation Strike Team (F.I.S.T.). The Fugitive Investigation Strike Team was able to locate Mr. Felix, which led to his arrest. He was booked into the Pima County Jail for two counts of robbery. July 23, 2016 Today, at approximately 11:45 a.m., deputies with the San Xavier Patrol District responded to a bank robbery at the Wells Fargo inside a Safeway store at 2940 W. Valencia Road. Detectives with the Robbery/Assault Unit are handling the investigation and are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. The suspect was described as Hispanic with a light complexion, a mustache and light brown eyes. He was middle aged, approximately 5’ 8” tall, and had a heavy build. He was last seen wearing a black hat with yellow writing or symbol on it, a blue denim shirt, jeans, black shoes, and prescription glasses. No one was injured during the incident; however, the suspect implied a weapon as he demanded money from bank employees. Detectives believe this is the same man who robbed the same bank on September 11th of last year. Anyone with information on the identity and/or whereabouts of the suspect is urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
