Law Enforcement Agencies Continue to Search for Loan Ranger Bandit

FBI Dallas July 18, 2013
  • Public Affairs Specialist Allison Mahan (972) 559-5000

This press release was originally issued by the Tyler, Texas Police Department.

The FBI, along with numerous law enforcement agencies in multiple southern states (Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, and Kentucky), are still seeking the identity and whereabouts of the suspect bank robber dubbed the “Loan Ranger Bandit.”

The suspect struck again 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 lookout for this suspect and any possible suspect vehicle. He has displayed a handgun in all his robberies and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Please contact your local law enforcement agency or the FBI if you have any information related to the possible identity or whereabouts of this suspect.
