In other investigations, police in Houston, Texas are looking for a bank robbery suspect, where the suspect allegedly handed over a note demanding money from a bank teller. However, this wasn’t the typical note one would think of when imagining a bank robbery.
According to police, a male suspect walked into the Woodforest National Bank on July 8th, shortly after the bank opened, and headed over to a teller while adorning a hoodie and a black bandanna over his face.

In any other time period in this country, a bandana on one’s face while in a bank would raise immediate suspicion – but we’re living in a period where masks are worn and encouraged everywhere. Authorities say the suspect requested a withdrawal from the teller and handed the following note over:
“I didn’t get a stimulus or that 10k loan. I lost my business to Covid so please make this easy and comply. I don’t wanna hurt nobody but will if I have to. Any suspicious moves & I will start shooting so please go get my money.”
When someone commits a crime – especially one involving the use or threat of violence – it is hardly excusable. But that doesn’t mean that one can’t feel some degree of empathy when hearing about cases when someone may have been pushed over the proverbial edge.
During the encounter, police say that the suspect didn’t produce a weapon the entire time. The teller reportedly complied with the suspect’s demand for money, and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.
Based upon surveillance footage, police believe the suspect to be anywhere between the ages of 30 to 39-years-old. He’d approximately 6 feet tall with a wide frame. During the robbery, the suspect was wearing a True Religion brand letterman jacket, pictured below.
The FBI’s Violent Crime Task Force is assisting with the investigation, along with the Houston Police Robbery Division. The agencies are asking that anyone with information on the suspect or his whereabouts to please call the Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477). Those with information can also submit tips online at www.crime-stoppers.org.
