CORPUS CHRISTI - It didn't take long for police to find a man who fit the description of a suspect in the robbery of a Capital One bank near Staples and Weber. Problem is, he had nothing to do with it.
About a half hour after the robbery a guy was seen running down Chester Street, just a few blocks from the bank.
They chased the man into a house where officers did end up arresting him and another man for something else.
When police entered the house, they found drug paraphernalia and counterfeit money.
The man they chased was arrested along with another man.
One was arrested for counterfeiting, the other for drug crimes.
Commander John Houston from the Corpus Christi Police Department says this particular house and the people in it have given the department trouble in the past.
"This whole group is well known to the police department. They are continually out stealing and taking things to feed their drug habit," he says.
In the end, it was an odd case of a lead in one case leading to two completely different arrests in another.
