SAN ANTONIO (February 7, 2013)—Former bank teller Pedro Godinez has returned to Texas to face charges stemming from the theft of nearly $108,000 from bank where he worked.
The FBI arrested Pedro Godinez after he voluntarily returned to San Antonio on a flight from Mexico.
Godinez faces theft charges related to a Bank of America branch in Lakeway, near Austin, investigators said.
Investigators say surveillance video showed Godinez walking into the vault and removing a cash packet that had $80,000 worth of $100 bills.
Nearly $28,000 turned up missing from the defendant's cash drawer.
Godinez disappeared on Jan. 29, 2009.
He was arrested Tuesday at San Antonio International Airport.
On Wednesday a judge released Godinez to the custody of his mother.
Godinez didn't immediately comment.
