Around 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, a man dressed in black entered the Alliance Federal Credit Union on 66th and Indiana, gave the bank teller a note demanding money and walked out. This was the third bank robbery in Lubbock over the past 6 months and police are considering that all three may have been committed by the same man.
According to Sgt. Jonathan Stewart of the Lubbock Police Department, it is a possibility that they haven't ruled out. The first robbery occurred on September 14th of last year when a man walked into the First United Bank on 98th and Indiana. Three months later, a man with a similar appearance robbed the Plains Capital Bank inside the South Plains Mall, two months before Wednesday's robbery.
Sgt. Stewart reassures us that people shouldn't worry about the safety at their bank. He says police will work with the banks' employees and managers to implement new security measures.
The Lubbock Police Department is asking for your help in with this case.
"If anybody recognizes this person or feels like they may recognize him or recognize the vehicle description, we ask that they would contact the Lubbock Crimeline at 741-1000. There is a reward for information that leads to an arrest or indictment in this case."
