Police have made an arrest in a case involving 700 pounds of marijuana and a suspect who fled the scene. Armando Mendoza, 29, was picked up in the 100 block of W San Pedro by the U.S. Marshals violent fugitive task force Monday. Police said he was the man wanted in connection with a chase through west Laredo back in mid-June. The chase turned up 700 pounds of marijuana, left in an SUV police said was being driven by Mendoza. Mendoza now faces charges of possession of marijuana, evading arrest with a motor vehicle, and evading on foot. He was taken to jail on a $100,000 bond.
