Socorro

A 42-year-old Los Lunas woman was arrested in connection with a bank robbery in Socorro on Thursday.

Carmen Tull was transported by the FBI to Albuquerque for processing.

The New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union was robbed at about 10 a.m. on Thursday, with an undetermined amount of cash taken, a news release from the FBI said.
