Bank robbery suspect bought car a day earlier

The suspect who robbed the Donaghey branch of Centennial Bank Saturday purchased a vehicle Friday afternoon just north of Damascus on Hwy 65, according to Det. David Short of the Conway Police Department.


The vehicle is described as a white 1997 Ford F250 extended, cab long wheel base, two wheel drive with a spray in bed liner and missing tailgate.  It has factory aluminum wheels with no center caps, it also has a large rear bumper with 2 D rings attached to it. The doors can only be opened from the outside, and the interior is tan and there is a CB antenna bracket inside the bed but it does not have an antenna attached. This vehicle is in addition to the car that the suspect was driving when he committed the robbery. Short said he may be traveling with a Hispanic man.

The suspect was an older white male who wore a tan jacket over a black shirt and tie. He had slicked back hair, and he was wearing sunglasses. He displayed a handgun, demanded money and exited the bank, heading south on Donaghey in a 4-door maroon sedan.

This is the second robbery of a Centennial Bank branch in the past few months with the Chesnut branch being robbed earlier this year.

Eric King, public relations officer for the bank, said no one was injured and the branch reopened after police completed their investigation.
