A man suspected in a Tyler bank robbery 8-months ago is behind bars.
Tyler Police investigators believe the guy caught on tape robbing United Federal Credit Union is 53-year-old Wallace Alexander Sparks of Lindale.
Sparks was already in jail in Montgomery County, Texas for another bank robbery.
Investigators say a robbery out of Montgomery County similar to the one at the credit union in Tyler led them to Sparks. The FBI and the Texas Rangers helped Tyler detectives get enough probable cause to charge Sparks with the October 3rd robbery.
