The search continues for the man the FBI now calls the Barrel Chested Bandit that robbed the Alliance Bank Southtown Branch on November 3rd of this year. He is also wanted as a suspect in bank robberies in Longview, Amarillo, and one in New Mexico, according to Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders. Local law enforcement, the FBI, and Texas Rangers continue the search for a 6-foot tall, heavy-set, white male.
A $3500 reward has been offered for information that leads to an indictment in connection to the robbery in Sulphur Springs. The Texas Bankers Foundation (TBF) administers a Robbery Rewards program to prevent and discourage robberies and other crimes against Texas banks and their employees. The program provides funds for rewards, thereby assisting law enforcement agencies in obtaining information to assist in the arrest and conviction of perpetrators. The Texas Bankers Foundation would like to offer a supplemental reward for the bank robbery through the Lake Country Crime Stoppers organization.
