The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force needs your help in identifying the female who is now believed to have committed at least three area bank robberies within the past month. The latest robbery occurred at the Capital One Bank located at 3037 FM 1960 East in Houston, Texas, on Friday, 12/16/2011. The woman was captured in several photos taken by the bank’s security cameras.
At approximately 2:40 p.m., the woman entered the bank and slid a note to the teller. The note demanded money and threatened the teller. The teller gave the woman some cash, but then the robber asked for more money. The teller told her she gave her all the money. The female bank robber then fled the bank. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.
