The Llano County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Benton Paul Buratti robbed the American Bank of Texas, located at 311 RR 2900 in Kingsland, on Jan. 4
Investigators say he passed a note to a teller. No weapon displayed, but he fled on foot after receiving an undisclosed amount of money.
Deputies say they were able to follow up on a Hill Country Crime Stopper's tip and other information from the public to identify Buratti as the suspect in the robbery and issued a warrant for his arrest.
He was found last Friday at a hotel in Arlington and arrested without incident.
Investigators believe Buratti did not act alone. A possible person of interest is a white female.
