More on Manchester Capstar Bank Robbery Arrests



As first reported by On Target News on June 26 two men are facing charges. The following is a press release on June 28 from the Manchester Police Department.

On November 22nd, 2023, Capstar Bank, located at 1814 Hillsboro Boulevard in Manchester, TN, was robbed by an unidentified male. The suspect entered the bank and instructed the employees to fill bags with money. After the suspect obtained the money, a witness observed a male get in to a vehicle and exit the area. Manchester Police Department began the investigation by collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses and victims. Because of the amazing local support, Manchester Police Department was able to locate an identical vehicle entering the city just prior to the robbery. This led Manchester Police Investigators to a business in Murfreesboro. After reviewing and collecting CCTV evidence, a male suspect was identified as Stephen Hampton (25).

At this point, the local Federal Bureau of Investigation’s office sent agents to support the investigation. Through that support, Manchester Investigators identified a second suspect, Marquez Wynn (25). Intelligence was gathered by multiple agencies for the next several months.

After nearly a year of investigations by multiple law enforcement agencies, law enforcement developed evidence and conducted search warrants on both suspects’ residences on June 13th, 2024. Through those searches, evidence was located tying these suspects, Marquez Wynn and Stephen Hampton, to this robbery. It is expected that Manchester Police Department will pursue charges for crimes committed, federally and locally.

A special thanks to Evansville Police Department, Kentucky State Police, Lexington Police Department, Tennessee Highway Patrol, Metro-Nashville Police Department, Tennessee Bureau of Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Many hours and days of work were spent on these cases by all agencies involved. These cases are a success because of the determination and grit of the law enforcement officers who worked tirelessly to bring these suspects to face justice for their crimes, in a safe and professional manner. Once again, we would like to thank our local businesses and citizens for their cooperation and support that aided in the successful apprehensions of these suspects.
