El Centro police detectives arrested a suspect Wednesday for an armed robbery committed in November.
Lt. Tim Blankenship said detectives Luis Hernandez and Angie Cuevas arrested Roy Argil Mendivel, 41, of El Centro with the help of Mendivel's parole officer.
Detectives think Mendivel and another suspect used a handgun to rob the El Rancho Grande bar, 445 E. Main St., in El Centro on Nov. 29.
Blankenship said detectives, after investigation, put out an arrest warrant for Mendivel, who was on parole.
Blankenship said Mendivel's parole officer heard of Mendivel's arrest warrant and asked Mendivel to come to the parole office in El Centro.
