Two Arrests made in Manchester Capstar Bank Robbery



Manchester’s Capstar Bank was robbed on Nov. 22, 2023, and now two men have been arrested for bank robbery. Recently, Markez Wynn (25) and Stephen Hampton (25) were arrested for a bank robbery that occurred in Kentucky; they are presumed to be the same suspects in the bank robberies that occurred in Indiana and Tennessee.

In August of 2023 Evansville’s Indiana Members Credit Union was robbed by an unidentified male. Once he secured money, he fled to an awaiting car nearby.

In November, the Capstar Bank location on Hillsboro Blvd. was robbed under similar circumstances.

In May of this year, a third bank robbery occurred in Kentucky, with the MO being the same as the previous two bank robberies.

With the help of multiple agencies and information gathered/shared, on June 13 search warrants and arrest warrants were executed at a residence in Tennessee. Wynn and Hampton (25) were charged.  

These arrests come after nearly a year long joint investigation between the Evansville Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Kentucky State Police, Tennessee Highway Patrol, Manchester Police Department (TN), Metro Nashville Police Department (TN), Tennessee Bureau of Investigations, and Lexington Police Department (KY). Additional charges are likely.
