The man charged with the robbery of a Lindale bank pleaded guilty in a Tyler court Thursday.

Anthony Rios pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery in connection with the armed robbery of the Capital One Bank in Lindale back in September.

After leading authorities on an international manhunt, Rio's was arrested in October at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport after exiting a plane arriving from the Philippines.
