The Casual Bank Robber, Caught in Action

Politeness still counts for something, right?

Above is a man who robbed a Bank of America branch inside a Food Town grocery store in the 9500 block of S. Kirkwood this morning.

"At approximately 11:05 a.m., the man entered the bank and casually waited in line with other customers before robbing the bank," the FBI says. "When it was his turn, he walked up to the teller and slipped her a threatening note demanding money. "

He got away with some cash; police are looking for him.

He's described by the FBI as "a black male, approximately 25-30 years old, 5'2" - 5'5" tall, with a medium to stocky build and a short, afro-style haircut. He wore a bright green tee-shirt and dark sunglasses."

If you see him, be polite or better yet, call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
