ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say five men are in custody following a bank robbery in northeast Albuquerque and are also suspects in similar holdups around the city.

The FBI says Albuquerque police arrested the men after the robbery Wednesday of a US Bank branch.

One of the suspects was arrested following an hour-long standoff at a home.

Authorities say the arrests resulted from an investigation by police and the FBI.

According to a criminal complaint, the FBI had been watching the men for several days before making the arrests.

The FBI identified the five suspects as 50-year-old Greg Miera, 43-year-old Martin Huertta, 31-year-old Christopher Gallegos, 20-year-old Christian Herrera and 20-year-old Isaiah Gallegos.

They’re expected to make initial court appearances Thursday.

It’s unclear if any of the five men have lawyers yet.
