Some Facebook bragging about bucks has led to four suspects accused of holding up a Houston bank. The postings about the March 23 robbery of International Bank of Commerce were included in a criminal complaint unsealed this week. The arrests, including two bank employees, were announced Thursday.

Security video shows two armed, masked suspects robbing the bank and fleeing with about $62,000.

A tip directed law officers to a pair of Facebook pages.

Federal investigators say one suspect's Facebook page boasted: "IM RICH."

Another said: "WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDREDS."

Nobody was injured in the robbery.
