Tyler, TX (KETK) —
The Loan Ranger Bandit has struck again.
On November 8, 2013 he robbed the Extraco Bank in Lampasas, Texas.
The F.B.I., along with numerous law enforcement agencies in multiple southern states (Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Kentucky), are still seeking the identity and whereabouts of the w/m suspect bank robber dubbed as the “Loan Ranger Bandit”.
Back in August, the F.B.I. offered a $10,000 reward.
The last bank he robbed was in Temple, Texas on July 12, 2013 around 9:00 a.m. when he entered the Santa Fe Community Credit Union in the 1700 block of W Avenue A. in Temple and robbed them at gunpoint. The credit union is right off I-35.
On May 10, 2013 a suspect matching the description of the Loan Ranger Bandit struck a bank in Louisville, Kentucky around 11:35 a.m.
The suspect has developed a pattern to return to the same banks that he has robbed in the past in several states. In Tyler he has robbed the Altra Federal Credit Union located at 5523 Troup Hwy. on August 11, 2011 and the Compass Bank located at 6910 S. Broadway on May 17, 2012.
Police would like the public to remain vigilant; especially all bank tellers, and to be on the look-out for this suspect and any possible suspect vehicle. He has displayed a handgun in all of his robberies and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Please dial 911 immediately if you observe this suspect.
