The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) conducted a traffic stop Sunday on US-287, which lead to the arrest of a suspected North Carolina bank robber.
At approximately 11:30 a.m., a DPS Trooper conducted a traffic stop on a 2005 Lexus passenger car, traveling southbound on US-287, for a traffic violation, near Iowa Park in Wichita County.
The driver of the Lexus initially gave the Trooper a false name but later gave his real name of Benoit Constant, 28, of Salisbury, Maryland. While running a check on the driver license it was discovered that Constant had an outstanding warrant from Cornelius, NC for Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon. Constant then attempted to flee on foot and was apprehended a short time later in a residential neighborhood.
