On Friday, January 15, 2010 at 10:00am, officers responded to Texar Federal Credit Union, 4800 Jefferson Avenue, in reference to a robbery call. According to reports, an unknown B/M entered the bank, approached the teller and presented a note demanding money. The suspect then fled the bank westbound on foot with an unspecified amount of money.
The suspect was described as a slender black male with a dark complexion, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and faded blue jeans, approximately 6’0 tall, weighing 150-175 pounds.
Immediately following the robbery, Officer and Detectives began to search the area for evidence. Officer Kevin Bounds and K-9 partner Bruno located the suspects’ sweatshirt, which contained over $13, 400 dollars in cash and a toy pistol inside the front pocket.
The evidence was recovered and officers set up surveillance to watch the area of where the money was located in case of the suspects return. Within hours, Detectives Sgt. Jason Shores and Alan Fincher observed a suspicious vehicle circling closely in the area of the recovered evidence. The occupants of the vehicle were identified as Justin Banks, 24, Darrell Banks, 18, and Phillip Gamble, 20, all of Texarkana. Upon further investigation, it was determined that Addrion Maddox, 19, of Texarkana, was the person who entered the bank. All four suspects were arrested for aggravated robbery. Maddox was located and arrested at his residence.
