FBI agents said late Thursday the man who robbed an IBC bank in Ardmore Wednesday morning is suspected of pulling a similar caper Thursday afternoon at BancFirst in Marietta. But the urge to pull off the second heist may have given authorities the information they need to identify him.


FBI agents said late Thursday the man who robbed an IBC bank in Ardmore Wednesday morning is suspected of pulling a similar caper Thursday afternoon at BancFirst in Marietta. But the urge to pull off the second heist may have given authorities the information they need to identify him.

 

What did the robber leave behind at BancFirst? Clearer security camera photographs of himself committing the crime.

 

The man entered the bank about 1 p.m., demanded money and fled in an unknown direction. FBI agents and Ardmore police aided Marietta police and the Love County Sheriff’s Department in investigating the robbery.

 

On Wednesday the man entered the Ardmore bank and handed a teller a note demanding cash. At the time he indicated he was armed with a gun, but did not show the weapon. During Thursday’s holdup the robber gave no indication he was armed. He did, however, bring his own plastic shopping bag in which he stashed an undisclosed amount of cash before escaping.

 

The lone robber is described as a white male in his late 40’s. He is approximately 6-feet tall, has a stocky build and weighs about 200 pounds.

 

Wednesday he was dressed in a blue shirt, blue pants, a ball cap and sunglasses. Thursday he wore a blue t-shirt, khaki shorts and white tennis shoes, but was still sporting the black ball cap and his sunglasses.

 

Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of the suspect or believe they saw the suspect fleeing either of the banks is urged to call any local law enforcement agency.
