THE LATEST ACCESSORY FOR THE CRIMINAL ON THE STREET!

The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force needs your help in identifying a man who robbed the Chase bank located at 8384 Westheimer in Houston, Texas, on September 18, 2010. 
    

At approximately 9:57 a.m., the man entered the bank and approached a teller.  While handing the teller a threatening demand note, the robber verbally announced that it was a robbery.  He then pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the teller.  He handed the teller a dark colored bag described as a “man-purse” and asked the teller to fill it up.  The teller complied and provided the robber with some cash.  He exited the bank and was seen getting into a beige or gold colored compact Toyota driven by another man.  No one was physically hurt.  The bank’s surveillance cameras captured some pictures of the man during the robbery. 


The robber is described as a black male, late 30s, approximately 5’8”-5’9”, about 180-190 pounds with a slim build.  Witnesses said he had “sunken cheeks” on both sides of his face.  During the robbery, he wore a baseball cap backwards, rhinestone sunglasses and a button-down work shirt with sweatpants.  He also carried what witnesses described as a dark colored “man-purse” and a semi-automatic handgun.   


The getaway driver is described as a white male who drove a gold or beige compact Toyota, possible a late 90s model.     


Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of these robbers, or any felony suspect.  If you have information about this crime, please call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
