Man's surprising reason for robbing bank day before wedding

Man's surprising reason for robbing bank day before wedding”

A Texas man was arrested after being identified as bank robbery suspect by his own fiancée the day before the couple were supposed to be Wednesday.

Wallace and Texas Ranger Chris Cash went to interview him and he confessed to the robbery, telling authorities he was supposed to be getting married Saturday and that he didn't have enough money for a ring or the wedding venue.

One of the still photos that captured Heath Bumpous during the bank robbery.

It was then that Bumpous' fiancée saw the Facebook post and recognized him.

Trinity County Sheriff, Woody Wallace said on Facebook that Heath Bumpous, 36, of Crockett, about 120 miles north of Houston, robbed the Citizens State Bank in nearby Groveton on Friday morning (Oct.4).

When the fiancee saw surveillance video stills of her husband-to-be robbing the bank that police had posted on Facebook, she persuaded him to surrender to police. She knew it was him.

According to Sheriff Wallace, who gave a video update on Facebook, the suspect "demanded money" from the teller at the bank and suggested he had a gun. She contacted him and asked him if he robbed a bank ... she convinced him that she knew it was him. "He needed to turn himself in", he added.

He was transferred to Trinity County Jail and spent his wedding night behind bars.

He is being held on charges of aggravated robbery.

Wallace says that most of the money was recovered along with clothes that he threw out of the window of his vehicle during his escape and the gun that he had concealed with him as well.
