Federal Complaint Filed Against Killeen Woman for Bank Robbery

Eboni Siamone McMurray, age 23 of Killeen, stands charged with allegedly robbing the First National Bank Texas branch in Killeen on Wednesday, announced U.S. Attorney John F. Bash, FBI San Antonio Division Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs and Killeen Police Chief Charles F. Kimble.

A federal criminal complaint unsealed today in Waco charges McMurray with one count of bank robbery.  The complaint alleges that on the afternoon of February 12, 2020, McMurray entered the bank located in the 4300 of East Central Texas Expressway.  She approached a teller and demanded that the teller “fill the bag.”  The complaint further states that McMurray then pointed a firearm directly at the teller, told the teller she had five seconds to comply, and began counting down from five.  The teller filled the bag with money as instructed.  McMurray exited the bank with approximately $2,500. 

Based on video surveillance from the scene, investigators were able to identify and subsequently locate McMurray’s vehicle.  FBI agents and Killeen Police officers, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service, arrested McMurray at her residence without incident yesterday. 

McMurray faces up to 25 years in federal prison upon conviction. She remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing on Tuesday at 9:00am before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manske in Waco.  

The FBI and Killeen Police Department are investigating this case.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Gloff is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government.

It is important to note that a criminal complaint is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
