ROCKPORT - It's business as usual now inside the Walmart in Rockport after a robbery at the IBC Bank branch inside the store just after 3 this afternoon. The schools right across the street from the store were locked down as police on foot and in a DPS helicopter searched the area.
Police say a white male, about 5'8" tall, walked into the store where he waited in line at the bank. When called up by the teller he let them know they were being robbed. We do not know if the guy was armed or just handed the teller a note.
Right now, Rockport police are interviewing a cab driver who may have given the guy a ride, not knowing why he wanted to leave town. The taxi is currently being processed at the police department for evidence.
No one is in custody for the robbery.
