A former Lantana resident was arrested this week after allegedly robbing a bank in Corinth.

On Monday afternoon, a man went into the Wells Fargo at 4051 FM 2181 in Corinth, approached a teller and passed a note that demanded money and suggested he had an explosive device. He received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene, according to a news release from the Corinth Police Department.

The next day, police obtained an arrest warrant for 42-year-old Martin Kyle Cummins for aggravated robbery and arrested him. According to Denton County Jail records, Cummins lived in Lantana just a couple years ago, and this was not his first arrest.

“Some great police work resulted in this quick arrest and I am very proud of our officers,” said Corinth Police Chief Jerry Garner. “The case also provided an excellent example of the value of teamwork, as Corinth PD had terrific support from the Lake Dallas and Hickory Creek Police Departments, Denton County Sheriff, the FBI, Texas D.P.S., and the U.S. Marshals Service.”
