Up to $5,000 Cash Reward

HOUSTON - The FBI Violent Crime Task Force needs the public’s help identifying and locating the person who robbed a Woodforest National Bank in northwest Houston this past summer. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the bank robber. 

On June 29, 2017, around 9:30 a.m., the suspect entered the Woodforest National Bank located inside Walmart at 3450 West FM 1960. The suspect approached the counter and submitted a threatening note demanding cash. The teller, in fear for her life and personal safety, gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect left the store in a new, small, white, four-door vehicle; make and model unknown.
