Update: Lindale police recover dye-stained bills; say robber may be local

The Lindale Police Department, along with the FBI, have recovered some of the bills stolen in a local bank robbery.

On September 12, at 3 p.m., a man held up the Capital One Bank on South Main in Lindale. The robber is described as having a medium complexion, wearing a white T-shirt under a blue long sleeve shirt, blue jeans and a white ball cap with a black bill.

The fugitive left the bank in a small light colored, low profile style car such as an early 1990s Honda Civic. He was last seen heading south on Highway 69.

Information obtained confirms a dye pack did go off, which could cause a burn injury. There is a good possibility that the robber has a burn injury or injuries on his hands or arms and is still stained with dye. The inside of the vehicle would have red dye stains as well.

A few bills have been recovered stained with red dye, suggesting that the robber might possibly be a local from this area.

Authorities are still working to determine the location and travel pattern of the bills that have recovered. They also plan to lift possible prints on the money left behind from the criminal.

Please contact the Lindale Police Department or the FBI if you have any information on this case.
