12-5-17 ORIGINAL STORY:

GRANGER, WA - The suspect accused of robbing the U.S. Bank in Granger for a second time is sitting in a Yakima County Jail cell tonight.

The suspect known as Moises Marquez was booked yesterday on suspicion of first degree robbery, and this is not his first.

Around 11 yesterday morning, deputies say 28-year-old Marquez walked into the U.S. Bank on Main Street and handed a teller an envelope that said "give me all your money now."

Deputies say the teller handed Marquez close to $4,000, and he was seen leaving in a gray 4-door Mazda. Authorities were notified and shortly after, spotted a car fitting the description, leading officers on a chase. During the pursuit, Marquez reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.

Officers eventually used spike strips and forced Marquez off the road on I-82 at the Grandview exit, where he was arrested.

As we previously mentioned, this is not the first time Marquez gets in trouble with the law. He has been charged before with robbing the exact same bank back in August.

Police tell us this U.S. Bank in Granger has been hit three times so far this year alone...the first incident happening back in May.
