The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force needs your help identifying two men who robbed a Houston area bank earlier this month. New photos released depict the bank robbers as they exited the grocery store in which the bank was located less than an hour before the robbery occurred. The evidence suggests the men cased the bank before they robbed it. The robbery occurred at the First Convenience bank, located inside the Kroger store at 5150 Buffalo Speedway in Houston, Texas, on 09/08/2011.
At approximately 2:45 p.m., the men entered the bank and approached two bank employees while they were filling the automated teller machine (ATM) with cash. The bank robbers assaulted the employees with their fists, and stole the two cash canisters that were to be placed inside the ATM. The robbers ran out of the bank and grocery store. They were last seen getting into a gold colored Dodge Caravan driven by a third man. Neither of the employees was seriously hurt.
The first robber is described as a black male, in his early 20s, approximately 5’3” - 5’4” tall, with a slim build and a light complexion. He wore a black baseball cap, black short sleeved tee-shirt over a white long-sleeved shirt, and black pants.
The second robber is described as a black male, in his early 20s, approximately 5’10” tall, with a slim build, and medium to dark complexion. He wore a black baseball cap, black short-sleeved tee-shirt and black pants.
The getaway driver is described as a black male with a dark complexion and a full beard. He wore a green baseball cap.
