NOONDAY, TX (KLTV) - East Texas authorities are searching for a suspect and a stolen vehicle involved in an early morning bank robbery. 


Smith County sheriff's deputies were called around 7:06 a.m. Friday to the Austin Bank on Highway 155 South in Noonday.

Investigators are at the scene talking to witnesses, according to sheriff's office spokesman John Moore.

The Department of Public Safety and FBI are assisting with the investigation. Officials are processing the scene for fingerprints and other evidence.
