WAXAHACHIE - A white male about six feet tall walked into the First Convenience Bank inside Wal-Mart and robbed it last week.
'The suspect approached the teller and handed them a note,' said Deputy Chief Brett Colston.
No weapon was displayed during the robbery and according to Colston the police department was not releasing the contents of the note at this time.
The Waxahachie Police Department's investigation into the bank robbery had begun shortly after 7:25 p.m. on Thursday, April 26 and had been trying to identify witnesses to the crime.
Colston said the department would like to let the community know they need witnesses who may have seen this individual walking into the Wal-Mart or leaving to identify a possible vehicle he may have been driving.
The FBI came out the night of the robbery and is part of the investigation into the bank robbery and routinely gets involved with bank robberies across the nation but according to a Waxahachie spokesman the police department will forward all the information they may gather to the FBI and hopes if the FBI gets anything concerning this robbery, they will pass it along to them. The amount of money taken during the robbery was also being withheld from the public, according to Colston.
The suspect was 45-50 years old with a goatee and wearing glasses.
According to the Waxahachie police department, the suspect has been identified as being involved in four other robberies across North Texas and has been active since January without being caught.
The Texas Rangers have been working closely with the department in an attempt to catch the suspect. The Waxahachie Police Department was asking anyone who may have witnessed the robbery or recognizes the suspect to contact them at 972-937-9940.
