Bank rob­bery sus­pect sought

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCALBRIEFING - Com­piled from staff and wire re­ports

Po­lice are search­ing for a man who they say robbed two banks in Round Rock last month and is also a sus­pect in two rob­beries along the Gulf Coast.

Po­lice say Ed­win Gus Schneider, 49, robbed a Re­gions Bank branch on Old Set­tlers Boule­vard on June 5 and a Bank of Amer­ica branch on Gat­tis School Road on June 30. In both in­stances, po­lice said, Schneider ap­proached a teller and de­manded money. He did not have a weapon nor did he make any at­tempt to con­ceal his iden­tity.

A ve­hi­cle used in the June 5 rob­bery has been re­cov­ered, po­lice said.

Schneider is also sus­pected of rob­bing banks in Cor­pus Christi and Port Lavaca, po­lice said. They be­lieve he is trav­el­ing be­tween the Cen­tral Texas and coastal ar­eas.

Po­lice are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion on Schneider to con­tact De­tec­tive Shawn Scott at 512-218-6674 or e-mail ss­cott@rround-rock.tx.us.
