Bank robber got $10,000, made two trips to the bank, complaint says

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The man arrested Monday and accused of robbing Lubbock National Bank on the afternoon of New Year's Eve took roughly $10,000 in the robbery according to court records.  Police announced Monday that they arrested Carlton Ray Taylor, 54, of Lubbock in the 1500 block of East 1st Street after getting a tip. 

Court records say that Taylor walked into the LNB branch at 1001 Main Street right at noon.  "Taylor did not conduct any banking business at that time but only stayed near a counter in the lobby for a few minutes and then left."

However, a criminal complaint says Taylor came back at 12:40 PM, and approached a teller who did not recognize him by name but did recognize him as a regular customer of the bank.

The complaint says, "Taylor handed the teller a note that which read 'This is a hold up.  Give me your money.'"

The complaint goes on to say that "The man [Taylor] then put his hand in his pocket  which led the teller to believe the man may have had a weapon."  The teller, "being afraid," gave Taylor six or seven stacks of bills with the bank wrappers still on them. 

Police and FBI very quickly learned of the name of their suspect.  Court records offer an explanation as to how.  "The teller then looked up previous checks cashed by the man who robbed him and learned that the man's name is Carlton Taylor."
