Bynum said police did not know what connection the two people in custody had with the other robberies.

After the robbery, Bynum said a SWAT team was called to the nearby Tennyson Apartments where they searched an apartment they thought was connected to the robberies. Bynum said no one was inside.

The Waco PD later released a statement that said eventually, three total people were taken into custody. Still, no one has been charged.
