Lubbock police have released a picture of the man suspected of robbing the Plains Capital Bank in the 4400 block of Brownfield Highway.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this robbery was the fact that the suspect was dressed in construction worker apparel complete with a yellow vest and a yellow hard hat.
The suspect entered the Plains Capital Bank branch around 10:30 Monday morning. You can see the suspect in surveillance photos with a gun displayed, demanding cash from employees. The suspect then fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
Due to the construction apparel the suspect was wearing, NewsChannel 11 can speculate that may have made him easy to blend in with all the construction going on nearby at the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
Once again the suspect is described as a White or Hispanic man in his late 30's or early 40's. He's about 6'0" tall and weighs close to 230 pounds. Again, he was wearing construction worker apparel which included a yellow vest and a yellow hard hat.
If you have any information, you are urged to call Crime Line at (806)741-1000.
The bank was closed for several hours Monday morning but reopened for business Monday afternoon. NewsChannel 11 will of course continue to follow this story and bring you new information as it becomes available.
