The FBI needs your help to find a couple of men they've dubbed the 'Women Wannabes' bank robbers. The two men, they say, wore wigs while robbing at least a couple of Houston-area banks. The pair hit the Wachovia bank at 12859 Kimberly Lane Monday afternoon, and are believed to be responsible for robbing the Amegy bank in Humble on Friday afternoon.

Investigators say in Monday's robbery, the two entered the bank and approached bank employees, handing over a note demanding that money be put into a plastic grocery bag. One of the men kept his hand in his pocket as if he were holding a weapon.

Once the bag was filled, the two exited the bank and were seen leaving the area in a blue Chevrolet four door sedan. No weapon was shown, and no one was physically hurt.

One suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s, stands 5'10" to 5'11" tall, slender build and dark complexion. He wore a white jogging suit and a curly dark wig. The second suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s, stands 6'0" tall, with a medium build and dark complexion. He wore a black jogging suit and a curly dark wig.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of the "Wannabes" or any felony suspect. If you have information about this case, please call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
