Heath Edward Bumpous of Crockett was charged with aggravated robbery in the incident. According to police, Bompous approached a teller at Citizens State Bank, told them he had a gun and asked for cash, KLTV reported.
Bompous was arrested after his bride-to-be recognized him in a Facebook post featuring surveillance video stills from the robbery. She told Bompous to contact police.
Sheriff Woody Wallace of the Trinity County Sheriff's Office told KLTV that Bompous was short on money and needed a way to pay for parts of the wedding that were still outstanding.
“He basically stated that he was getting married tomorrow so he didn’t have enough money for a wedding ring that he wanted to buy and he needed to pay for the wedding venue,”said Wallace.
The bulk of the money was recovered. Bompous has not yet entered a plea.
