A guy who robbed a branch bank in downtown's Two Shell Plaza caused police to evacuate some of the building by leaving behind a bag he said contained a bomb.
The incident happened around 11:15 a.m., the FBI says. The man walked up to tellers and asked for money, saying his bag contained a gun and a bomb.
He not only left behind the bag, which turned out to be empty; he also left behind some very good pictures of himself on the security cams.
The FBI described him as "a bald white male, 5'7 - 5'8", 200 plus pounds and plump. He wore a black jacket, white tee-shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes."
Anyone with information about the guy should call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
