Friona bank robbery suspect released from custody

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, Texas - Despite objections from prosecutors, the suspect in Monday's armed bank robbery in Friona is released from custody.

John Michael Garibay had a detention hearing at the federal court in Amarillo Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors argued against his release because they believe he is a flight risk and also has ties to both Mexico and California.
  
Garibay is accused of robbing the Friona Federal Credit Union Monday afternoon at gunpoint. He was arrested a short time later.
