A form of robbery called bank jugging is making its way into Central Texas.  Two Houston men are behind bars in Williamson County Jail after Cedar Park police arrested them for breaking into a vehicle... whose driver had boxes of coins from a bank for his coin-op business. Cedar Park detective Randel Pitts explains juggers watch for bank customers who leave with large amounts of cash, and it's become a popular crime because of its ease.  Pitts also says the men arrested were from Houston, where a lot of jugging activity seems to occur.

28-year-old Jaquis Washington and 27-year-old Chrisoll Lewis face burglary charges and Lewis faces a parole violation from Harris County for burglary of a home.
