The FBI says a Minnesota man suspected of kidnapping his estranged wife has been arrested in Mexico and his wife has been recovered.

The FBI says Timothy Glen Caskey was arrested Monday by Mexican state police officers at a bank in Matamoros. Caskey allegedly kidnapped his wife, Roberta Lynn Caskey, off a street in the northeastern Minnesota city of Virginia on July 14.

Caskey is also being investigated for a bank robbery in Ottawa, Kansas, the day after the kidnapping and the robbery of a pickup truck in New Braunfels, Texas, the day after that.

The FBI says Roberta Caskey appeared distraught and will be returned to Minnesota. The agency says Timothy Caskey will be extradited to the U.S. and will have an initial federal court appearance in San Antonio.
