Through a joint investigation with the local FBI office, Abilene Police have identified the suspect in a bank robbery which occurred in the early morning hours of September 24, 2019, at the First State Bank located at 2118 South Treadaway Blvd. A female bank executive had fought with the suspect, and he ultimately left without any cash.
Through an extensive investigation that spanned several months and countless man-hours, and with the aid of several law enforcement agencies, the suspect’s vehicle, and ultimately the suspect himself, was identified as a 70-year-old male from El Paso, TX. He is currently in custody on unrelated charges. A complaint has been filed federally against the suspect in connection with the robbery of the First State Bank south Treadaway Abilene location. A Federal warrant was issued for the robbery.
