UPDATE Lindale Police Department

LINDALE (KYTX) - On 9-12-12, the Capital One Bank on South Main in Lindale was robbed by an unknown medium complexion male wearing a white T-shirt under a blue long sleeve shirt with blue jeans and a white ball cap with a black bill. 

The suspect left the bank in a small light colored low profile style car such as an early 1990s Honda Civic.  The suspect left south on HWY 69. 

Information obtained confirms that a dye pack did go off, which could cause a burn injury.  There is a good possibility that the suspect has obtained a burn injury or injuries on his hands or arms and is still stained with dye. The inside of the vehicle would have red dye stains as well. 

We have recovered a few bills stained with Red Dye suggesting that the suspect might possibly be a local from this area.  We are continuing with the investigation of determining the location and travel pattern of the bills that we recovered. 

We will process evidence in attempt locate any evidence left behind by the suspect as well as attempt to lift possible prints from the bills.

Please contact the Lindale Police Department or your Local FBI Office if you have any information on this case.   

 


 

LINDALE (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) — Lindale police continue to work last week's bank robbery and say some of the dye-stained money has turned up in the Lindale area Sgt. Chad Mcelyea said they have recovered some of the money, but he did not go into specifics of how the money was recovered.

"We had some citizens that brought it to us," he said.

On Wednesday a unknown medium complexion male pointed a handgun at the clerk in the Capital One Bank on South Main and demanded money.

Mcelyea said the man was seen wearing a white T-shirt under a blue long sleeve shirt with blue jeans and a white ball cap with a black bill.

"He left the bank and got into a small light colored low profile style car such as an early 1990s Honda Civic,' he said.

Mcelyea said the suspect left south on U.S. Highway 69 and witnesses were able to tell police that they saw the dye pack go off inside the car.

He said there is a good possibility that the suspect has obtained a burn injury or injuries on his hands or arms and is still stained with dye.

"That stuff doesn't just wash off. It has to wear off, so we're hoping someone has seen this person," he said.

Mcelyea also said the inside of the vehicle would have red dye stains as well and the interior would likely be ruined.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the Lindale Police Department at 903-882-3313 or the local FBI office.
