DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) -

Diboll Police have been working around the clock with the FBI trying to solve the identity of a man that robbed the Temple-Inland Federal Credit Union on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Chief Steven Baker, a black man walked into the credit union and presented the tellers with a note. He then proceeded to walk out with an estimated $1,300. The suspect was described as a younger-looking, thin black man approximately 5-foot-7 tall. He was wearing a black toboggan,black jacket, gold designer type sunglasses, and red ear buds.

"We take every lead serious," said Detective Rodney Cheshire with the Diboll Police Department. "We do consider this a high-priority case. We have officers working since it happened at 4 yesterday. This is our bank. They take care of us, so we want to take care of them."'

Baker said the police have little to work with and are are currently trying to track down more security footage to try to get a better look at the suspect.

"We are using every available resource that we have," Cheshire said. "Lufkin Police Department, Texas DPS, FBI as well as our own guys are working around the clock."

The manager said the tellers acted according to protocol set up by the credit union. She was happy no one was hurt and hopes the public can now help police find the suspect.

Cheshire said the suspect left on foot, and considering the time of day, it would be hard for him to get away without anyone noticing.

"Due to high traffic being in the middle of town, someone had to have seen something," Cheshire said. "If they, did will they please call police department or Crimestoppers?"

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (936) 639-TIPS.
