Leander teen accused of burglary after crashing through bank doors

LEANDER, TEXAS - A teen has been charged with burglary of a building with intent to commit theft after being accused of crashing his vehicle through a Leander bank's doors.

Leander police said they responded to a burglary alarm at the South Star Bank located at 10737 E. Crystal Falls Pkwy. on Nov. 3 and observed forced entry to the front door. 

After obtaining surveillance footage, police said the suspect can be seen driving his vehicle through the doors, crashing into the teller counter and jumping over to look through cabinets and drawers.

Still surveillance photographs of the suspect were distributed to surrounding law enforcement agencies, police said, and the suspect's vehicle was later located in Austin with the same damage as captured in the footage.

After conducting a motor vehicle registration check on the vehicle, conducting a Texas driver license inquiry and matching surveillance video with his license photo, police confirmed the suspect's identity as Denzel Ogolla, 19.

Officials said Ogolla was located wearing the same T-shirt as observed in the surveillance video and taken into custody for an unrelated charged. Online records show that Ogolla had previous charges from September, including marijuana possession and driving while intoxicated.
