The FBI Violent Crime Task Force reports that a suspect in a string of bank robberies was unsuccessful at scoring any cash this time.
Houston police have dubbed the guy the “Sticky Note Bandit” because of his alleged habit of handing bank tellers sticky notes.
Investigators claim he wore black sunglasses, a black wig, a blue medical mask, a green woman’s sweater, black women’s ballerina flats, and a black pocketbook while waiting in line with the note. The last time he tried to steal a Bank of America, he showed up dressed in a red outfit.
According to the authorities, this was the thief’s fourth heist in as many weeks.
At 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, the suspect resumed his routine at the Bank of America on 4301 San Felipe St. After standing in line; he allegedly passed a message to the cashier at the bank requesting that she not contact the police.
The worker refused his demand for payment and retreated to a secure back room. The suspect, according to the police, waited for a while in the foyer before fleeing empty-handed. According to their findings, nobody was physically harmed during the robbery attempt.
The police say he’s a 5-foot-8 Black male with a “thin to medium build.”
