The FBI Violent Crime Task Force needs the public’s help identifying and locating three suspects who robbed two Houston-area Capital One banks last week. Investigators believe the armed trio may also be responsible for at least two other bank robberies in 2018. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the bank robbers. On Thursday, February 21, 2019, at approximately 4:36 p.m., two black male suspects and one black female suspect entered the Capital One Bank located at 15900 Stuebner Airline Rd. in Spring, TX. The trio swarmed the bank and ordered customers and employees into a back room and on to the floor before jumping over the teller counter and demanding money and the keys to open the teller drawers. The suspects eventually left the bank without any money, after the keys could not be located. No vehicle or direction of travel was observed, and no injuries were reported. The following day, on Friday, February 22, 2019, at approximately 4:05 p.m., the trio entered the Capital One Bank at 6117 N. Highway 6 in northwest Houston. Armed with pistols and a knife, they swarmed the bank and ordered customers and employees into a back room and on to the floor. The suspects jumped over the teller counter and demanded money and the keys to open the teller drawers. In fear for their lives, bank employees gave the suspects the keys to the registers. After collecting an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspects left the bank. Minor injuries were reported. Investigators believe at least one member of this crew is responsible for two other Capital One Bank robberies that occurred on October 2, 2018 and November 19, 2018 at 19619 Tomball Pkwy and 10951 Jones Rd., respectively.
