Suspected Longview Bank Robber Caught

After three days on the run, police have caught the man they believe is responsible for three Longview robberies. After a tip, they found 49 year old Jacky Glenn Sypert at the Park Ridge Inn on East Marshall avenue. Sypert was charged today with aggravated robbery in Tuesday's Hybernia Bank robbery. He was also charged with robbing an E-Z Mart and a fireworks stand, all within a 24- hour period.

The judge who arraigned Sypert today, was the same judge who sent him to prison for robbery in 1996.

"It's hard to help people and to do things for them when they don't want to change and apparently he had a substance problem that has taken hold of his life and apparently caused most of his problems" said Gregg County Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson.

A law enforcement source told us Sypert netted around 28- thousand dollars in the 3 robberies. No word if the money has been recovered.
