Update: Police searching for suspects in ETX bank robbery

HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) -

A follow up for you now. Henderson Police have been piecing together tips they have been getting, involving the bank robbery Tuesday morning.

A few viewers even called KLTV 7 yesterday and gave us information.

Several people across East Texas recognized the woman in the surveillance video, who is wanted for robbing The Citizens National Bank robbery in Henderson.

"We got quite a few to say the least, we are fixing to split up to start checking these people out and see where they have been and get recent pictures and things like that," says Lieutenant Sweeney with the Henderson Police Department.  

The woman pulled out a handgun, and gave the bank clerk a note specifying how much money she wanted. Then the woman fled the scene, taking the note with her.

"This is the first time I've seen in recent years where they just walk in calmly, and it's like nobody notices anything," says Sweeney.  He says they are going to try to enhance the video to get more details of her purse, the gun, and even her wardrobe.

"Some of the witnesses said they believe it was a wig just by the way it looked and the way it sat on her head, but we're always open to the possibility that it's not a wig," says Sweeney.

Police say they know for a fact that the woman did not flee from the bank alone. Authorities believe her get-away driver walked into the convenience store next door during the robbery.

Citizen's National Bank says the teller did exactly what she should have. They say money can be replaced. The most important thing is to get the robber out of the bank as soon as possible.

Police also say they are looking at different stores in East Texas that sell surgical masks, to track down what sales have been made recently, and to who.
