Two men on Jan. 3 walked into a Friendswood BBVA Compass Bank and took more than $5,000 after displaying guns and forcing the tellers to toss money into bags, according to a probable cause affidavit released Monday.

Twelve days later, men matching the description of the Friendswood robbers were arrested just 30 minutes after stealing more than $11,000 from a Texas First Bank in Galveston using similar tactics, police said.
