A Denton man is in custody for the July 5th Bank Robbery at the DATCU Credit Union located in the lobby of the Tom Thumb in Trophy Club. An arrest warrant was served on Richard Huntley Chiles, 53 of Denton yesterday charging him with Aggravated Robbery. Chiles is in custody at the Collin County Jail in lieu of $450,000.00 bond for the Trophy Club Bank Robbery and $400,000.00 bond for a similar bank robbery that occurred at a store bank in Allen, Texas in mid September.

Chiles, who was dubbed “The regular Joe Bandit” in an FBI press release in August, has been linked to a series of similar bank robberies across the Denton/Tarrant County areas. Trophy Club Police worked in partnership with the Frisco Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies throughout the investigation.
