Local man arrested after throwing rock at bank window

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - One man is behind bars after reportedly vandalizing a local bank.

On March 3, around 1:00 p.m., officers were sent to the Wells Fargo Bank at 905 South Fillmore.

The initial call received was about a customer that was yelling, cursing, and refusing to leave.

Authorities say while the call was coming in, officers were advised that there was a loud sound like a gunshot in the bank and that one person in the bank was overheard saying that something had hit her in the back.

The suspect was reportedly walking west on SE 10th Avenue from the bank. Officers located the suspect and took him into custody near 10th and S. Harrison.

He was later identified as 35-year-old Jason Lee Deloye.

Responding officers determined that no shot had been fired.

Employees claim he had entered the bank and asked a teller about opening an account.

The teller offered to put him into contact with someone who could do that and claims Deloye started yelling profanity for no apparent reason, creating a disturbance in the bank.

Another employee asked the suspect to leave and escorted him out the south door of the bank.

They say Doloye stood outside the bank for a few moments, picked up a landscaping rock, and threw it through one of the large panes of glass on the south side of the bank.

The rock went through the glass about seven feet above the ground.

It hit a bank employee on the back and then hit a pane of glass inside the bank, breaking it.

The bank employee did not have a visible injury but indicated she would seek medical attention.

Deloye was booked into the Potter County Detention Center for assault causing bodily injury and state jail felony criminal mischief over $5000.
