As of Thursday morning, local authorities had yet to apprehend or identify a suspect in the June 15 Pilgrim Bank robbery, according to police. Sulphur Springs Police and Lake Country Crime Stoppers are asking anyone with video or information to call in tips.

The bank robbery reportedly occurred during the noon hour at the South Broadway Street bank. SSPD was notified at 12:55 p.m. June 15, 2022.

The suspect was reported to be a heavier set, white male, approximately 6 feet tall, who was wearing a light blue hoody, glasses, a blue face mask and khaki colored pants, according to Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jason Ricketson.

Police at approximately 2:20 p.m. Wednesday disseminated the images (below) of the suspect, hoping someone could identify the suspect based on the image and writing on the back of the shirt.

SSPD later Wednesday afternoon identified a white vehicle with sunroof and luggage rack, but no front license plate, as a possible suspect vehicle or connected to the suspect. Thursday, investigators said the suspect vehicle is a Chevrolet Suburban.

Police investigation into the bank robbery remained ongoing Thursday morning, but new leads were slim.
