Robbery Suspect Caught in Odessa

ODESSA - A very similar, scary situation at the West Texas State Bank Friday morning.

One thing not similar though, thankfully, was the outcome.

Police tell NewsWest 9 22-year-old Crayshun Comer entered the bank Friday morning, flashed a weapon, and handed the teller a note demanding cash.

He took off down an alley at 11:41, and two officers in the area, Corporal Omero Carrasco and Officer Angie Reyes took him into custody by 11:45.

It was all wrapped up in less than ten minutes, and compare that to the robbery last month where officials are still asking for your help finding the suspect.

"We've identified several subjects, trying to get more information together on them, just continually working it and taking information from the public," FBI Special Agent Matthew Espenshade, said.

Here's another description of the suspect in the first robbery.

It was a black female in her mid-to-late 20's.

She left the bank carrying a black back-pack with blue trim.

Comer will face federal charges for aggravated bank robbery since he did flash a weapon.

One interesting thing to note, that weapon turned out to not even be real, but those charges will stick simply because of the threat.
