UPDATE (July 9, 2013 - 5:11 p.m.): The local office of the F.B.I. obtained a warrant for a suspect in the robbery of C-T Federal Credit Union that occurred Monday morning in Waco.

Darryl Rashad Stoglin, 29, of Waco, has prior weapons arrests and is considered to be armed and dangerous.

The Waco area saw two separate bank robberies on Monday. They add to a string of robberies that have taken place in the past few weeks.

On June 26, a woman believed to be in her late thirties and wearing sunglasses ,strolled into the Wells Fargo Bank on Wooded Acres just before noon.

She left with cash after telling employees she was armed in a written note.

Then came Monday when police responded to two bank robberies within hours of each other.

“The first one was at the credit union over on Central Park,” said Sgt. Patrick Swanton of Waco Police.

Swanton said a man about six-feet tall and weighing roughly 200 pounds entered the CT Waco Federal Credit Union and handed the teller a threatening note.

He left but not before leaving some pretty clear surveillance pictures.

Then, less than three hours later, came another bank robbery call.

Swanton said, “At about 12:05 p.m, an individual described as a female walked into the Wells Fargo bank at Third and Franklin.”

Like the other two robberies, a hand-written note demanded money.
Police think the two robberies on Monday are not related.

They believe they know who the credit union man is, and they suspect the Wells Fargo person of interest may be the same person.

If so, the suspect may be swapping wigs and looks with each heist.

Swanton thinks it’s only a matter of time before each gets caught.

“The reason you don’t see a lot of bank robberies is because, if the crook has any sense at all, he or she realizes that it is a federal crime to begin with,” said Swanton.

“They just don’t go unsolved. I mean statistically, bank robberies don’t go unsolved for very long. You may get somebody who hits one, or two, or four ,or five in a spree, but they eventually get caught. Very few bank robbers ever get away.”
