Law Enforcement continues to search for 'Loan Ranger Bandit'

TYLER, June 18, 2013--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 white, male suspect bank robber dubbed as 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 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.
