HOUSTON – The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is asking for the public’s help identifying a woman suspected in at least three Houston-area bank robberies.
The latest robbery happened at the Capital One Bank in the 3000 block of FM 1960 East on Friday, December 16, 2011.
Investigators said the woman walked into the bank around 2:40 p.m. and slid a threatening note to the teller.
The teller gave the woman some cash, but then the suspect asked for more money.
When the teller told the suspect she’d given her everything she had, the suspect fled.
No one was injured.
The suspect is believed to be in her mid-30s. She stands 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 215-220 pounds.
At the time of the latest robbery, she was wearing a tan wool hat, a tan turtleneck sweater, a black windbreaker and blue jeans.
Investigators said the same suspect is believed to be responsible for a robbery at a Compass Bank in the 10600 block of Louetta on November 22, 2011, and a robbery at a Capital One Bank in the 10900 block of Jones Road on November 19, 2011.
Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this suspect.
Tipsters are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477 or the Houston Office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
