Our stormy weather last weekend apparently didn't stop a bank robber from pulling off a heist at a Houston bank. And because he didn't let the rain stop him, the FBI has dubbed this guy the 'Water-logged Comerica Bank Bandit.'

It happened Saturday, October 31, at a little before noon at the Comerica Bank at 12727 East Freeway. According to the tellers, the suspect approached the counter, looking wet and nervous. He reportedly reached into his shirt pocket and pulled out a soggy piece of paper, on which he demanded cash.

But the note was so wet that tellers couldn't read it. That's when the suspect gave verbal demands instead, telling employees, "I'll blow everything up."

The suspect is described as a black male between 25 and 30 years old, standing between 6 feet, 1 inch and 6 feet, 2 inches tall. He appeared to weigh around 220 pounds. He was wearing a white long-sleeved, button down shirt, black dress pants, black shoes, black sunglasses and a black baseball cap with a red-colored bill.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this suspect. If you have information, please call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000. All tipsters remain anonymous.
