Southlake bank robber handed tellers a note demanding cash. Do you recognize him?

A man who presented tellers at BBVA Compass bank with a note demanding cash on Thursday got away, but not before being caught on camera, the Southlake Department of Public Safety said.

The robbery happened at about 12:40 p.m. at the bank at 2650 E. Southlake Blvd., police said.

The white man, who appears to be in his 30s or 40s, left the bank afterward in an unknown direction in an unknown vehicle, police said.

Police did not say how much money was stolen.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact DPS crime analyst Diana Smith at 817-748-8915 or dsmith@ci.southlake.tx.us. Smith is coordinating with the FBI in the investigation, police said.

Police responded shortly after 9am to a report of a robbery with shots fired at Veritex Bank on Merrick Street near Camp Bowie Blvd. Three women were shot during the holdup. Witnesses reported seeing two suspects in hoodies fleeing on foot.
