FRESNO, Texas – A reward is being to help deputies nab a robber who forced his way into the drive-thru window of a Fresno-area Jack in the Box last month.

The suspect walked up to the window around 2 a.m. on January 27. When an employee opened the window, he crawled through it.

Investigators with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office say he never flashed a weapon, but he acted like he had a handgun in his pocket.

The suspect forced two workers into the walk-in freezer, then forced one of them back out to help him steal the cash.

"It’s very likely this was not his first crime," said Capt. James Burger with the FBCSO. "He appeared very sophisticated in the way he committed this robbery."

The suspect was African-American and about 5’8 and about 150 pounds. The employees couldn’t see his face because he wore a mask, but they did notice a tattoo of a bird on his right wrist. He was wearing a dark hoodie, light pants and dark sneakers.

Fort Bend County Crimes Stoppers, Inc. will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the robber.

If you know something, call Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
