Police identify, arrest man who robbed a First National Bank in Killeen

The Killeen Police Department have identified a man officers said robbed a bank on Nov. 30.

Police said 21-year-old Marcus Delars Branson Jr. was taken into custody on Dec. 11 and charged with robbery. Branson was transported to the Federal Court in Waco by a Killeen Police Detective and an FBI Task Force Officer on Dec. 12, according to KPD.

KPD Spokesperson Ofelia Miramontez said the robbery happened around 9:18 a.m. at the First National Bank located at 2201 Trimmier Rd. in Killeen. She said a man walked into the bank, handed the teller a note demanding money and left with the money when the teller complied.

Most of Branson's face was covered in surveillance photos, which can be viewed below.

It was not immediately clear if the suspect ran away or used a getaway car to leave the bank. Police said the suspect never displayed a gun.

Nobody was harmed during the robbery. But, police said the bank would be closed until at least lunchtime while officers investigated the crime.

As of 11 a.m., the FBI was on scene and assisting the Killeen Police Department with the case, according to Channel 6 News Reporter Emani Payne who confirmed that information with law enforcement.

This particular bank has been robbed three times in the past two years, according to police.
