Accused Bank Robber Who Wanted Haircut Faces Federal Indictment

7 Eyewitness News Staff

A California man who police said admitted to robbing a Hub City Bank
is facing a federal indictment for his alleged crime.

Trung Huynh, 37, was indicted Monday by a Federal grand jury on count of robbing a west Jackson bank back on April 19.

According to investigators, the robbery with a strange twist, happened at the Regions Bank location on North Parkway near the U.S. Highway 45 By Pass. Shortly after the crime, hairstylists at a nearby salon said a man walked in with a bag full of ink bomb-stained cash and told them he either needed a haircut or a taxi.

Witnesses there said he acted very nervous and they knew something was not right, so they called police. Officers arrived and within moments took the man into custody.

If convicted, Huynh could face up to 20 years in jail and a fine of $250,000.
