Bank Robbery - Austin Bank at Bar K



On Monday, August 11th at about 4:06 PM, a vehicle pulled next to the northwest side of Austin Bank at the Bar K Ranch store at 5653 Highway 259 North. Two black males got out of the car and the driver remained inside. One of the men, wearing dark clothing, light colored gloves, a face mask and a large brim hat entered the bank with a long barrel shotgun and said “give me the money”. The second man, wearing a light colored hoodie, light colored gloves, jeans and sunglasses, stayed at the doorway to the bank and didn’t speak. Thirteen seconds later, the men returned to the car with an undisclosed amount of cash. The car left south bound on Airline towards Longview.


The suspect with the shotgun was described as a black male, unknown age, approximately 5’8” tall and a medium build. The suspect at the doorway was described as a black male in his late 20’s, about 6’0” tall and a medium build. The suspect in the car was not seen.
