FBI Needs Your Help to Catch 'Yankees Cap Crook'

Up to $5,000 Cash Reward

HOUSTON, TX—The FBI Violent Crime Task Force seeks assistance from the public to identify and locate a suspect, dubbed the “Yankees Cap Crook,” who is responsible for a Houston area bank robbery.

On January 4, 2021, a man entered the Woodforest Bank located within a Walmart store at 1313 Fry Road in Katy at approximately 6:45 p.m. He requested a withdrawal slip from a teller, then made a written demand for cash. The suspect proceeded to the Money Center area of the store and approached an employee assisting a customer who was making a payment. The man demanded cash from the transaction with the customer and lifted his jacket, exposing the grip of a black semi-automatic pistol. The employee gave the cash to the robber. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money and is also wanted in connection with a robbery that occurred later that night at a Walmart located at 8538 IH-35 in San Antonio.

Witnesses describe the “Yankees Cap Crook” as a Black male in his late 20s, approximately 5'6” to 6'0" tall, medium build wearing a black New York Yankees baseball cap, two-tone gray over navy blue hooded jacket, camo pants, black shoes, and a beige face mask. He was seen in a dark-colored sedan.

Bank surveillance photos of the suspect and his car are posted on Twitter @FBIHouston and attached.
