BAYTOWN, Texas – A man is now custody, accused of robbing two banks Saturday morning. 

The first bank robbery was reported around 10:40 a.m. in the 800 block of Rollingbrook in Baytown, police said. Police said the suspect left the scene in a black SUV.

While officers were at the scene, they received a call at 11:32 a.m. reporting a second bank robbery.

When police arrived at the second location, a TDECU in the 6000 block of Garth Road, witnesses told police the suspect and the SUV was spotted in the area of Garth Road and Interstate 10.

Police searched the area, including a shopping center in the 6900 block of Garth Road. Police said an officer spotted 32-year-old Victor Luna hiding behind a vehicle in the parking lot of a Vision Source. Police said Luna pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officer.
