Armed Bank Robber Hits Two Banks Before Noon


Surveillance Photos Released from Both Bank Robberies

The Houston FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the man who robbed the First Convenience Bank located at 10306 South Post Oak Road in Houston, Texas, earlier today. He is also suspected in the robbery of another First Convenience Bank, located at 612 North Victory in Houston, Texas. Both robberies occurred within a few hours of one another. Photographs from both robberies are below.

At approximately 9:45 a.m., the man entered the first bank, displayed a hand gun, and verbally demanded money. The teller complied and gave the man some cash. At about 11:31 a.m., the same man is suspected of robbing the second First Convenience location. During this robbery, he also brandished a weapon and verbally demanded cash. No one was physically hurt during either robbery.

The robber was described a white male in his late 30s, approximately 5’9” tall, 180 pounds, with a light complexion with some acne scars visible and a full beard. He wore prescription eye glasses, a tan baseball-type hat, and a blue button-down, long-sleeved shirt.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber. If you have information about this case, please call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
