Witnesses saw a suspect leave the scene in a light blue Lincoln Mark VII, Mullins said. A short time later, police found Robinson's car, a 1990 Lincoln Mark VII, close to the bank, he said.
Since that crime, Robinson is suspected of robbing several other banks in the Southland, and there is a warrant for his arrest in Arkansas for bank robbery, Mullins said.
