Lo­cal bank robbed for sec­ond time this year

Texarkana Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Texarkana, Ark., po­lice are look­ing for a man who robbed Ban­cor­pSouth at about 10 a.m. Thurs­day in the 2200 block of North State Line Av­enue.

De­tails of the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that an un­known male, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weigh­ing about 180 pounds and wear­ing a black hooded sweat­shirt and a blue mask that only showed his eyes, en­tered the bank and de­manded money from the teller while dis­play­ing a hand­gun.

Upon re­ceiv­ing an undis­closed amount of cash, the sus­pect left the bank and headed south from the build­ing.

This is the sec­ond time this year that the bank has had an armed rob­bery. A man wear­ing a mask and dark cloth­ing robbed the branch on Jan. 9. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this or any other crime is urged to call the Ar­kan­sas-side po­lice at 903798-3154 or the Texarkana Area Crime Stop­pers at 903-793-STOP.
