On Monday morning, just as the Chase Bank in Downtown Corsicana opened, the Corsicana Police Department was alerted via 9-1-1 to a report of armed robbery. Within minutes, CPD officers arrived on scene.
Upon arrival, a Chase Bank employee, who interacted with the suspect, was interviewed by police. The witness stated that he entered the bank wearing a stocking cap, a white “Covid” mask, long sleeved black shirt with blue pants. He handed the teller a ‘note’ containing specific instructions and slightly raised his shirt to reveal a pistol, tucked into his waistband. The teller complied with the suspect’s instructions.
According to police reports, the suspect quickly exited the Chase Bank at the east exit, near the rear parking area. A second witness who arrived at the location as the suspect was leaving, observed the suspect, traveling on foot southbound crossing East Collin Street, where he entered an older model dark green or blue Chevrolet extended cab truck.
Corsicana Police Chief Robert Johnson stated, “The CPD is working closely with the FBI, following up all available leads. We also ask that all downtown businesses check their surveillance cameras from approximately 8:30AM until 9AM for any vehicle that resembles the one described above. If you have information regarding this robbery, please contact the Corsicana Police Department.”
The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5’5 – 5’10.
