DALLAS — The manhunt for suspected serial bank robber Steven Milam now stretches from North Texas to Tyler.

His most recent robbery was Saturday morning at a BBVA Compass Bank branch in Richardson.

Milam is also accused of hitting banks in Dallas, Irving and Plano while wearing what’s known as a “Handsome Guy” mask.

Authorities say Milam, 44, is actually a casket salesman from Tyler, who was featured in a 2009 TV report.

Richardson police said Milam robbed the BBVA Compass Bank at Campbell and Plano Roads Saturday morning, then opened fire on the first officer to respond.

No one was hurt, but the FBI says Milam may be responsible for more than half a dozen holdups in North Texas.

Carla Bridges lives next door to Milam in Tyler and was surprised to learn about his alleged double life.

“Shoot! I didn’t know all that,” she said. “They’ve always been nice. They’d speak to us when we’d speak to them, and all that.”

A handful of patrol cars have been staking out the suspect’s home, but Bridges said she hasn’t seen him since Christmas.

Milam went to prison in 2005 for bank robberies. When caught this time, he will face a more serious charge of attempted capital murder for shooting at police.

Police and the FBI are asking for the public’s help in finding Steven Milam before he strikes again.
