Authorities in Washington County have found all the money from the Burton State Bank Robbery and charged the suspect with the crime.

Nineteen-year-old Jordy Basey is in the Washington County jail on $100,000 bond.

Sheriff J.W. Jankowski says Thursday morning a black male with a bandana covering his face stole $5,600 from the bank.

A Burton resident spotted Basey, who matched the suspect's description and a car chase ensued.

Brenham Police were able to arrest Basey for questioning.

Investigators found all the stolen money Friday morning where Basey was arrested.
