Rupert Bank Robbery Suspect Arraigned In Greenbrier County

Gary Lee Toler, 64, has been arraigned in Greenbrier County Magistrate Court after allegedly robbing Summit Community Bank in Rupert at gunpoint.

According to the criminal complaint, Cpl. J. W. Gilkeson of the West Virginia State Police was dispatched to Summit Community Bank at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14, regarding an armed robbery.

The caller stated that a white male had entered the building with a face covering and hat, the complaint states. He presented a gun and a handwritten note demanding money. Bank employees proceeded to give the man money, all $50 bills as he requested. He then put the money in his backpack and left on foot.

The following day, Thursday, June 15, at 9:52 a.m., Gilkeson received a call from the Greenbrier County 911 center that Toler’s wife had called the Sheriff’s Department in Rupert stating it was her husband who robbed the bank and that he was at the Princeton Walmart, the complaint alleges.

Officers from the Princeton detachment of the West Virginia State Police notified Walmart employees and were able to take Toler, along with a female companion, into custody.

Both Toler and his female companion possessed $50 bills stamped by the bank with a routing number. Toler was arrested and has been charged with one felony count of armed robbery. He is currently at Southern Regional Jail on a $200,000 cash/surety bond.

At this time, the total amount of money stolen from Summit Community Bank has not been disclosed. Charges have not been filed against Toler’s female companion.
