Detectives are searching for a Liberty County bank robbery suspect accused of reporting a fake bomb at a high school to distract officers from responding to his alleged heist.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 40-year-old David Glenn Manuel in connection to the Tuesday afternoon robbery of Security State Bank in Dayton, according to a Dayton Police Department statement.

Detectives say just before he robbed the bank, Manuel called 9-1-1 threatening to set off a bomb at the Dayton High School campus about a mile and half away.

Nothing was found at the school campus.

No one was injured during the robbery either, but authorities say they consider Manuel to be armed and dangerous.

He is described as a white man who is about 5 feet 11 inches tall, 180 pounds with dark brown hair, hazel eyes and of medium build. He was last seen driving a silver 2006 Chevrolet four-door passenger car with the Texas License plate No. 480MTH.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Dayton Police Department at 936-258-7621.
