Posted:

By Brandon Hartman and Stephanie Jacksis

TEMPLE - Police responded to a robbery that occurred at the "Temple Santa Fe Credit Union," at 1750 West Avenue A. around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

Officers learned on arrival that a man had entered the bank, displayed a handgun to the teller, and displayed a note demanding money. The man received an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing on foot. Several customers were in the bank at the time but no one was injured.

Officers searched the area until around 1:40 p.m., but were unable to locate the suspect. The FBI is assisting in the ongoing investigation.

Due to the robbery and the search for the armed suspect that took place as a result, several Temple ISD campuses went on a "Soft Lock down" at about 12:50 p.m.

The schools are as follows:

- Temple High School, and its south campus, Edwards Academy

- Freeman Heights Elementary School

- TISD Central Administrative Offices

- Kennedy Powell Elementary School

To clarify, a "soft lock down" means the campuses went about their normal activities inside the schools, but outside activities were severely limited or postponed.  Access to all buildings was strictly limited. The lock down ended at about 1:40 p.m.

Temple Police are describing the suspect as a 6-feet tall, white male who was wearing a striped green shirt, blue jeans and work boots at the time.  Witnesses told police he may have had a tattoo on his neck.

The suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. If you have any information about the case contact the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500.
