The FBI is releasing photographs of a man wanted for at least two Houston area bank robberies over the past two months. The latest occurred at the J.P. Morgan Chase Bank located at 13103 FM 1960 West in Houston, Texas, earlier today. Investigators believe the same man is responsible for a similar robbery of another J.P. Morgan Chase branch located at 12350 FM 1960 West in Houston, Texas. That robbery occurred On Sept. 17.
At approximately 1:15 p.m. today, the man entered the bank and approached a teller while carrying a black leather portfolio folder in his hands. He pulled out and handed the teller a threatening note demanding money. Although the note stated he had a weapon, no weapon was seen by witnesses. The teller gave the robber some cash and he exited the bank. No one was physically hurt during the robbery. He was last seen leaving the area on foot.
The robber was described as a white or Hispanic male, 5’10” tall, and about 25 to 30 years old. He had a beard and wore a black jacket and a baseball cap with the Texans logo on the front.
