In Houston, where taxis are way down the list of transportation options, that's a nice twist.
The perpetrator, described as "white male, 35-40, approximately 5'7"-5'8" tall, about 170-180 pounds with a medium build, short brown hair and a fair complexion," robbed a Chase branch in Montrose yesterday shortly before noon.
He gave the teller a threatening note, the FBI says, got some cash and then headed out the door.
