The FBI now has a name they say goes with the face of a bank robbery suspect they've dubbed the 'Tall, Dark and Handsome Bandit.' And now, the FBI needs your help in locating fugitive John "Steven" Stark.

Stark is charged with bank robbery after a heist at the Bank of America at 2625 Calder in Beaumont on January 30. He is also wanted for questioning in the robbery of the Comerica Bank at 3135 Southwest Freeway in Houston on Thursday, February 2.

During the Beaumont bank robbery, Stark is alleged to have passed a threatening note to tellers and never spoke. In the more recent Houston robbery, the bank robber also handed a teller a threatening note which demanded money. No one was physically hurt during either robbery.

Stark is a 46-year-old white male who stands six feet tall and weighs approximately 230 pounds. He was last known to be driving a silver 2006 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan with the Texas license plate 699XPW.

Stark's last known address was in Liberty County. He is also known to have friends and associates in the Beaumont and Houston, Texas areas.

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), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
