First National Bank robber

23-year-old Killeen resident Eboni Siamone McMurray is accused of robbing of the First National Bank on Wednesday afternoon.

The woman who police said robbed the First National Bank in Killeen on Wednesday has been arrested and identified.

Killeen police released a statement on Friday identifying 23-year-old Killeen resident Eboni Siamone McMurray as the person who allegedly robbed the bank at 4304 E. Central Texas Expressway.

“In a joint investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Killeen Police Department Violent Crimes Unit, the suspect was taken into custody without incident” late Thursday, the statement said.

According to police reports, McMurray entered the bank on Wednesday afternoon, approached a teller and demanded that the teller “fill the bag.” The complaint further states that McMurray then pointed a firearm directly at the teller, told the teller she had five seconds to comply, and began counting down from five.

Daryl Fields with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Waco, through a press release, said a federal criminal complaint out of Waco charged McMurray with one count of bank robbery.

He added that McMurray left the bank with $2,500.

“Based on video surveillance from the scene, investigators were able to identify and subsequently locate McMurray’s vehicle. FBI agents and Killeen police officers, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service, arrested McMurray at her residence without incident yesterday (Thursday),” Fields said.

As of Friday, she is in custody with the United States Marshals Service.

A hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday in Waco before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manske.

McMurray could face up to 25 years in federal prison upon conviction, according to Fields.
