Armed Trio Startles Customers, Takes Over Busy City Centre Bank

The FBI is releasing photographs of armed bank robbers who took over a busy City Centre bank earlier today. Three men robbed the Amegy bank located at 800 Town and Country Boulevard, #110 in Houston, Texas. Customers and employees were held at gunpoint during the robbery, although no one was physically hurt. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering an up to $5,000 reward in the case.

At approximately 11:17 a.m., two armed men entered the bank carrying dark-colored semi-automatic handguns. One of the robbers held customers and employees at gunpoint, while the other jumped the counter and grabbed the cash. The two armed robbers were picked up by a third man driving a 2007 to 2010 gun-metal gray Chevrolet Impala. The Chevy Impala had black rim tires, limo tint on its side and rear windows, and paper covering the license plate.

He wore a dark zip-up polo hoodie, black pants, sneakers with white soles, and carried a red canvass shopping bag with white writing. The third robber drove the getaway car, a 2007 to 2010 gun metal gray Chevy Impala.
