HILLSBORO, TX (KXXV) -

The Hillsboro Department of Public Safety said they arrested a suspect accused of robbing a bank, after leading authorities on a chase on Thursday morning. 

The Hillsboro Department of Public Safety said the suspect robbed the First National Bank around 2:21 p.m. at the First National Bank located at 300 E Elm St. on Tuesday afternoon. 

The suspect fled before officers arrived at the scene. 

Bank employees told police the suspect approached them with a note demanding money. 

The suspect left the area on foot with an unknown amount of money. 

On Thursday around 10:56 a.m. the Italy Police Department initiated a vehicle pursuit for a traffic violation that led authorities to Waco, where the suspect was arrested and booked in the Ellis County Jail on charges of unauthorized use of motor vehicle, evading arrest-vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and failure to identify-fugitive.  

During the investigation, Hillsboro police said the suspect used a family member's name when arrested.  Authorities are using a fingerprint identification system to try to identify him.
