His luck finally ran out.
Wanted for robbing at least five banks in recent months, including First Financial Bank in Stephenville, the suspect described as being well-dressed and having a receding hairline was taken into custody by Burleson police on Wednesday.
William James McClintock, 43, of Santo, was arrested after police set up surveillance at Southwest Bank in Burleson, Commander Cindy Aaron with the Burleson Police Department said.
Following the robbery of a Cleburne bank two weeks ago, Burleson’s criminal investigation department put together a leaflet and distributed it to area banks with the suspect's information. Aaron said at least two bank employees familiar with the suspect's picture called the police department to report that they had seen the suspect in their banks in recent days.
Burleson and Cleburne investigators working with the FBI and Texas Rangers then set up surveillance at various Cleburne and Burleson banks, Aaron said.
Shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, Detective Tom Catron, positioned at Southwest Bank in an unmarked police car, spotted the suspect's red and white Dodge Dakota pickup.
"By the time Detective Catron could turn his vehicle around to see the (suspect's) truck, the suspect had already entered the bank and was coming out," Aaron said.
Aaron said the detective then followed the suspect and radioed for backup. When two more officers arrived on scene, the suspect was stopped.
A female companion was also inside the suspect's vehicle. She was identified as Jamie LaNelle England, 26, of Mineral Wells.
Stephenville Police Chief Roy Halsell said the suspect allegedly confessed to the Stephenville robbery that took place in January and feels "confident" that police have their man.
Meanwhile, Ron Mullins, president of First Financial Bank, said he is "thrilled" the suspect has been caught.
"It's amazing to me that a guy not wearing a mask could have hit so many banks since January," Mullins said. "I'm just glad they were finally able to catch him."
McClintock and England are both being held on robbery charges.
