The Houston FBI and Richmond Police Department are looking for a man who robbed a Capitol One Bank in Richmond this morning. Like most criminal masterminds, he apparently felt it was OK to basically stare at the security camera because his sunglasses and baseball cap would indubitably and eternally cloak his identity. However, one of the biggest mysteries about this modern-day Dillinger is that he felt the need to wear a cap and shirt with a sports logo we can't quite identify. Frankly, it's starting to tick us off.

According to the FBI, "the bank bandit was described as a white male, approximately 5'7", 140-180 pounds. He wore blue jean shorts, a black short sleeve shirt with a logo, and a baseball cap with a logo." Around 10 a.m., he showed the teller a note demanding money. No weapons were used.

OK, but what logo is that? And is the one on the cap the same as the one on the shirt? We really wish the FBI would have been able to ask the teller, or any other witnesses, and find out which franchise this bandito was proudly representing, thus including it in the press release. (Of course, there's always the slight chance that the teller was concentrating more on saving her life than what team this guy likes to root for when he's not out committing felonies).

If you have information about this robbery -- or, just as importantly, what freakin' team logo that is -- please call the Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers tip line at 281-342-8477.
