Dayton’s Security State Bank robbed

By BOBBY HORN JR.
DAYTON—Authorities are searching for a man who made an “illegal withdraw” from a Dayton bank on April 5.
Police say that around 12:30 p.m. a man entered the Security State Bank, at the corner of FM 1960 and FM 321. The man passed a note to a cashier indicating that he had a firearm and was demanding cash.
The man fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
There were no reported injuries.
The man is described as a white male, clean-cut, between mid 30s to early 40, about 5’9”. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing blue jeans, a dark-colored shirt and white ball cap.
He fled the scene in a silver four-door sedan, presumably a Chevy Monte Carlo.
Shortly before the robbery a bomb threat was called in to Dayton High School. No device was found and police say that it is presumed that the call was made to divert attention away from the bank.
Anyone with information related to the case is asked to call the Dayton Police Department at 936-258-7621.
