HOUSTON – A search was under way Thursday for a man the FBI dubbed the “Tall, Dark and Handsome Bandit.”

Surveillance video captured the man as he held up the Comerica Bank in the 3100 block of the Southwest Freeway Thursday at about 11:55 a.m.

He didn’t have a weapon; instead he flashed a smile, demanded money from a teller and then walked out like nothing happened, investigators said.

No one was hurt during the robbery.   

Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of the suspect.

If you have information about this crime, please call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
