Police arrest accomplice, charged with Aug. 29 Austin Telco Credit Union robbery
Round Rock police on Thursday arrested and charged an Austin woman for her role in the Aug. 29 robbery of the Austin Telco Credit Union at 201 Sundance Parkway, the city's second bank robbery of 2011.
On Sept. 15, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force -- which includes Round Rock police -- arrested Dominique Nicole Pack, 37, without incident at her place of employment in Pflugerville. She is charged with aggravated robbery and is being held without bond at the Williamson County jail.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, while fleeing from police immediately after the crime one of the two robbers crashed the Chevrolet SUV he was driving into a parked car, abandoned it, then escaped in an awaiting vehicle.
The second suspect fell from the crashed vehicle and was arrested moments later after a short foot chase. Police identified and arrested the escaped suspect three days later. Both suspects were booked into the Williamson County jail, charged with aggravated robbery.
Pack, the owner of the Chevrolet, called Austin police shortly after the robbery to report that her vehicle was stolen. Round Rock investigators interviewed Pack and learned that she was the girlfriend of the brother of one of the robbers. Pack denied any knowledge of the robbery, but later confessed that she lied to Austin police about her vehicle being stolen.
Investigators reviewed surveillance camera footage -- captured during the morning hours before the robbery -- and saw that Pack drove the same Chevrolet to the bank, then went inside and reportedly spoke with a bank teller about opening an account. Investigators noted that Pack continuously scanned the bank's interior before she left the bank. The robbery was committed about 90 minutes later.
The charges carry a penalty of up to life in prison and a $10,000 fine.
