FBI and Missouri City Police Release Video of Wanted Bank Robber

A digital billboard campaign has been launched offering a reward for the capture of a Missouri City bank robber. The FBI and Missouri City Police are hoping video and pictures of the robber committing the crime will help generate the tips needed to identify the robber and solve the case.

In an aggressive effort to bring the bank robber to justice, the FBI and Missouri City Police Department are partnering with Clear Channel Outdoor and Crime Stoppers of Houston. Starting today, digital billboards located throughout the Greater Houston area will publish the wanted bank robber’s photograph and advertise a reward offered in the case. Crime Stoppers of Houston will pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to the location and arrest of the wanted bank robber.

On January 22, 2015, at approximately 1:30p.m., the robber entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 2440 Texas Parkway in Missouri City, Texas. He approached a teller and verbally demanded cash. The teller observed the robber put his hand inside his pocket as though possessed a weapon, although no weapon was seen by the teller. He fled the bank and the area with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.

The bank robber is described as a Hispanic male with a light mustache and goatee. He was about 5’6” to 5’9” tall and wore a black hoodie, beanie hat, and possibly gray sweatpants. The Missouri City Police Department has released a video of the bank robber in this case:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q47i-TPW5nA
