Man Arrested for Alleged Bank Robbery

Wed, 10 Jul 2019 17:21:07 CDT

A 70-year-old Texas man was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly committing armed robbery at Litchfield National Bank.

Gregory C. Stickel of Victoria, TX, was charged with Aggravated Robbery. He is currently being held in the Montgomery County Jail.

According to a news release from the Litchfield Police Department, officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at 9 a.m. at the bank's campus in the 1100 block of West Union Avenue. Prior to the report, an officer patrolling the area noticed an older man carrying a bag containing what appeared to be U.S. Currency. The officer made visual contact with the subject, who was also exhibiting suspicious behavior.

The officer received the report on the radio and discovered that the man, later identified as Stickel, matched the description. It was then that he detained Stickel and transported him to jail.

The department reminds the public that all charges are merely accusations and all suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
