TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Daniel River Burson, arrested in connection with the Aug. 11 Capital One Bank robbery in Tyler, appeared in federal court Friday for an initial appearance and arraignment.

Burson broke down in tears as Judge John D. Love advised him he had been indicted for bank robbery under Title 18, Section 2113 of the United States Code. He pleaded not guilty to count one of his indictment.

According to the indictment, Burson got away with approximately $98,477.30.

Burson was employed by Capital One as a corporate security consultant investigator.

On Aug. 11 at 7:52 a.m., Tyler police received a 911 call from an employee about a robbery at the Capital One Bank, located at Copeland and Loop 323.

The bank employee said she and another female employee were walking back towards the drive-thru building door when they were approached by a white male suspect telling them to drop the black night deposit bag. The suspect then grabbed the bag and fled in a dark Mercedes Benz sedan with no license plates. 

“They were on their way back into the main building and as they were walking down the sidewalk they were approached by the suspect,” said Don Martin, Public Information Officer for the Tyler Police Department.

The women told police the man was wearing a business suit and tie and was about 6 feet tall with a thin build. The women never saw a gun, but noticed something chrome colored in his hand.
