Buda police continue to search for a man who robbed the Austin Telco Credit Union at gunpoint on Nov. 15.

The suspect, who reportedly dispayed a handgun as he demanded money from a teller, was described as a Hispanic male in his mid 20s or early 30s. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller, the suspect fled the bank on foot in an unknown direction. He was wearing a white “UT” cap, a grey pullover hoodie with pouch, sunglasses, and a white bandana with black detail covering much of his face.

Bank surveillance photographs show the suspect entering the bank, standing at the teller window and leaving the bank. A police composite drawing depicts what the robber may look like without the bandana covering his face. Buda Police investigators have no other leads as to the identity of the robber and want the public’s help to identify him.

Hays County Crime Stoppers is assisting the Buda Police Department in solving the armed robbery. Those whose submitted information to Crime Stoppers leads to an arrest and indictment will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Those who call Crime Stoppers are given a code number used for payment of the reward. Their identity is never revealed and they have no further involvement in the case. Crimes of interest by Crime Stoppers include murder, aggravated assault, sexual assault, robbery, auto theft, business or residential burglary, felony theft, illegal narcotics, felony fugitives, or any other felony crime.

The Austin Telco Credit Union is in the 300 block of Old San Antonio Road, between the Wal-Mart Super Center and Cabela’s in Buda.
