In a statement, the North Little Rock Police Department said Israel Ada Vegas Quijada, 25, of North Little Rock was taken into custody around 2:15 p.m. Friday on charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.
Quijada admitted to investigators that he was responsible for the robbery, according to a news release.
Officers responded around 5:45 p.m. July 7 to a Simmons Bank branch at 3901 Camp Robinson Road, where employees said that a masked man with a rifle took an undisclosed amount of money.
