Smooth Criminal: Kinda Cool Looking Dude Sought for Bank Robbery

Seriously, check this cat out. According to a release from the FBI, the guy in the photo strolled (I assume he didn't just walk) into a Bank of America loacated at 7910 Bissonett just before 2 p.m. Saturday August 24. He walked up to the teller and handed over a threatening note. He was also allegedly in possession of a pistol.

He received some cash from the teller and rolled up on outta there on foot. He is described as a black male, 35-40 years old, between 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall and around 160 pounds. He was wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and some fly sunglasses.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident. Given how some of the crazy people who rob banks dress, this guy is an upgrade. Sure, he's still allegedly a crook, but he's a well dressed crook, like a gentleman cat burglar, except he's clearly not a gentleman, so nevermind.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000.00 for information leading to the charging and arrest of the dude in the photo. If you know anything about him, like where he shops, please call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
