HPD Robbery Division/FBI Bank Robbery Task Force Sergeant D. A. Ryza reported:

The suspect walked into the Washington Mutual Bank and inquired about opening an account. When she was asked to provide identification, she withdrew a note from her handbag. The note announced that this was a robbery, demanded the money and stated that she had a gun. The suspect was taken to the teller counter where a teller withdrew the money and handed the cash to the suspect. She then turned and walked out of the bank. The suspect kept her hand inside her black handbag as if she had a gun.

It is believed that this is the same suspect who robbed the First Convenience Bank in Missouri City, Texas on 6/22/05.

The suspect is described as a black female, 25-35 years old, 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches in height, 180 to 200 pounds and considered heavy build. She was wearing a large straw hat, light pink shirt, pink and black skirt carrying a black purse.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division/ FBI Bank Robbery Task Force at (713) 693-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
