The FBI needs your help to find the so-called 'XXXL Bandit,' who is suspected of robbing at least two Houston-area banks. The suspect got his nickname from the FBI for his unique large stature.

The most recent robbery happened at the Associated Federal Credit Union at 16400 El Camino Real on August 5. Investigators say the suspect struck up a conversation with a teller before handing over a threatening note demanding money.

The teller obliged and the suspect fled the bank and left the Kroger through an emergency exit. No one was hurt in that robbery.

The same man is believed to be the one who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank inside the Randall's grocery store at 2323 Clear Lake City Blvd. on July 12.

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