Special Agent in Charge James E. Finch of the Oklahoma City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the robbery of the J.P. Morgan Chase Bank at 7401 S. Walker in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and the arrest of Nolasco Santa Maria Denis, age 31 of Oklahoma City.

At approximately 2:15 p.m. on June 19, 2013, a Hispanic male entered the bank lobby and approached the teller counter. The subject told the teller he had a gun in his pocket (although none was seen) and demanded money. The teller complied with the subject’s demand and gave him an undisclosed amount of money.

Witnesses observed the subject depart the bank and walk across the street to a convenience store. The subject came out of the store with a bag and returned to his vehicle which was parked directly in front of the bank. Oklahoma City Police Officers responded to the robbery call, and as they approached the bank, they observed the individual matching the subject description standing beside the vehicle in front of the bank. The subject, identified as Nolasco Santa Maria Denis, was taken into custody by Oklahoma City Police Officers without incident. Denis will face federal bank robbery charges.

No one was injured in today’s robbery. This robbery is being investigated by the FBI and the Oklahoma City Police Department. The public is reminded an arrest is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
