FBI: Two northwest Houston banks targeted minutes apart


Both robberies happened around 11am but had different outcomes.

In one of the them, authorities arrested the suspect shortly after he targeted a bank in the 12200 block of the Northwest Freeway.

Authorities caught him after they spotted his getaway vehicle and chased him into the woods.

Several blocks away, in the 1200 block of West 43rd Street, another bank was targeted by a robber. In this one, the suspect walked in, ordered a teller to hand over the cash and walked away with an undisclosed amount of money.

That suspect is still on the run. He's described as a heavy set white male in his mid-30s. He's about 6 feet tall and weighs around 250 pounds. He was unshaven and wore a plaid jacket, baseball style hat, sunglasses, and an orange backpack.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber. If you have information about this case, please call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
