Hull bank robbed

By Vanesa Brashier,

Authorities are investigating a bank robbery that occurred in Hull Wednesday morning.

Around 9:17 a.m., a Hispanic male walked into Texas First Bank, formerly known as Hull State Bank, and handed the cashier a note demanding very specific denominations of cash, according to Sheriff’s Investigator James McQueen.

“She handed the money to him and he exited the bank, walking toward Hull,” McQueen said. “At this time, we are interviewing witnesses and taking statements.”

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 20-30 years old. He was wearing dark clothing and a black hoodie.

Investigators believe he fled the scene in a silver or gray passenger car.

Three bank employees were inside at the time of the robbery. No one was injured.

The sheriff’s office is asking residents in Hull who have home video surveillance systems and those who may have noticed a suspicious person in the area at the time of the robbery to contact investigators at 936-336-4500.
