Comerica Bank robbed in Northeast Austin


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating a bank robbery in Northeast Austin, Friday morning.

Police say the robbery happened around 10:20 a.m. at the Comerica Bank at 2315 E. Anderson Ln. The suspect did not show a weapon, but he did slip a note to the teller, who then put an unknown amount of money and a dye pack into a bag. As the suspect was leaving, the dye pack went off, so authorities say he should have the dye on himself and/or his clothing. Police also found some money scattered along the roadway near the bank.

The suspect is described as a black male of light complexion, in his mid 20’s to early 30’s. He is from 5’5″ to 5’8″ tall, of thin build and with facial hair. He was wearing a black jacket, red button-up shirt with a white t-shirt underneath. He also wore a white Nike beanie.

No one was injured during the robbery.
