On Wednesday morning around 9 a.m., two men backed their brown Toyota Corolla up to the south main entrance of the City Bank on 50th and Indiana. They entered the bank with guns and ordered everyone to the ground.
Both men were caught on surveillance video. It showed they were disguised, one with a blonde wig and fake beard, the other with some sort of clear mask and a cap. One of them forced the bank manager into the vault and took an undisclosed amount of money. No one in the bank was injured.
The men left the scene in the brown Toyota Corolla which was stolen from a 7-11 on 50th and Quaker Tuesday night. They abandoned that vehicle a short distance from the bank. Now City Bank is offering a $25,000 reward for information on the people who committed the crime. Bank CEO, Mike Liner, says, "We would like to see these individuals brought in and off the street. This is an incidence that doesn't happen everyday in Lubbock, Texas."
Police are now looking for two white males. One is six feet tall, 20 to 25 years of age, with a thin build. He was unshaven with blonde hair and blue eyes. That suspect was wearing the blonde wig and fake beard. The second suspect was 5' 7", 30 to 35 years of age with a stocky build and light complexion. He was unshaven and wearing a cap.
The same City Bank was robbed just two weeks ago on April 8th. That robbery is still unsolved and police do not believe they're related. In the last robbery they're looking for a hispanic male, 30 to 40 years old, 5' 6"to 5' 8." His getaway vehicle was a blue Chevy Step-Side with gold letters on the tailgate.
City Bank is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of that man. Again, they are offering a $25,000 reward for information on the men involved in Wednesday's robbery. If you have any information on either robbery call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
