A brazen female bank robber hit two Houston-area banks this afternoon within an hour, but each time she was turned away without getting any cash. The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is releasing bank surveillance photographs and needs your help identifying the woman.

At about 3:15 p.m., the woman first entered the Bank of America located at 2302 Fannin Street in Houston, Texas. She handed a note to a teller demanding cash. She left the bank without getting any money. She left the area in a taxi cab. At about 3:35 p.m., the same female went into the Bank of America located at 1905 West Gray in Houston, Texas. Again, she handed a note to tellers asking for cash, but got nothing. She also left the area in an unknown taxi cab. The female wore the exact same clothing at both banks.

The robber is described as a black female in her 40s, 5’7” tall, and weighing about 160-170 pounds. She wore dark sunglasses and carries a cell phone as depicted in the photographs.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000.00 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber. If you have information about this case or recognize this unique jacket, please call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS (8477) or the Houston FBI Office at 713-693-5000.
