Longview Robbery Suspect's Wife Asks Him To Surrender

The man suspected of robbing a bank and convenience store on the same day in East Texas is still on the loose, and his wife is asking him to give himself up. For Gladewater resident Pam Cross, it's still hard to believe, the man she was married to for 10 years is suspected of robbing a Longview bank on Tuesday. Police say 49-year-old Jacky Glenn Sypert claimed to have a bomb when he robbed the Hybernia bank in the 1100 block of Judson Road.

Police say seven hours earlier in the day, Sypert robbed an E-Z mart on Estes parkway.

"It really shocked me.  Really, it discouraged me to think that he would go and do something like this again," says Cross.

Cross says Sypert had served seven years in prison on robbery charges from 1996 and had only been out for seven months. Cross says although Sypert was a good-hearted person, he had a dark side.

"He opened car doors and he was a real gentleman, but the drug addiction tore him up, he stayed straight for five years then went to a treatment center then went back" Cross said.

We spoke with Sypert's son today, army private Charles Sypert who's training in Fort Hood to eventually deploy to Iraq. He said he wants his father to do the right thing and give himself up.

"The hard part is what its doing to his son" says Cross.

Federal warrants on both robberies have been issued for Sypert's arrest. Sypert got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from each robbery.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts, is asked to call Longview police.
