Man Robbed a Bank the Day before his Wedding to Pay for the Ceremony

A Texas man is accused of robbing a bank because he couldn't pay for his wedding.

Heath Bumpous turned himself in about two hours after he robbed the Citizens State Bank in Groveton, Texas -- and a day before he was set to get married, according to Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace. The bank is only about 500 feet away from the sheriff's office in the small town north of Houston.

"He basically stated that he was getting married tomorrow so he didn't have enough money for a wedding ring that he wanted to buy and he needed to pay for the wedding venue," Wallace said in a video message posted Friday on Facebook.

The sheriff's office posted pictures from the bank's surveillance video and a description of his vehicle on social media to see if the public could identify the suspect.

Someone did -- his fiancee.
