A man arrested after a high speed chase in Donna awaits additional charges in Pharr for allegedly robbing a hotel. 30 year old Ricardo Villarreal was arrested Monday by Donna police officers just minutes after he committed a robbery at a hotel.

According to police, Villarreal robbed the red roof inn off highway 281 and Nolana avenue shortly after midnight on Monday. Villarreal allegedly used a screwdriver to threaten a clerk and fled the scene in a white Plymouth van.

Unfortunately for him, he was arrested after his vehicle was spotted in Alamo. That’s when a chase ensued and officers were able to take him into custody.
Villarreal has been turned over to Pharr police where he is expected to face additional charges for aggravated robbery tomorrow.
