Bank Robbers Now Look Like Your Dad

Categories: Crime

Ah, a Tuesday afternoon in a Spirit of Texas Bank branch down on Bay Area Boulevard. Someone's dad is calmly waiting on line, wearing the usual dad outfit of a sport shirt, "I'm retired" stubble and -- wait a second, what's that he's holding in his hand?

Your Dad's robbing a bank!

The FBI says this guy walked into a bank branch in the 1000 block of Bay Area Boulevard this afternoon at about 1:30 p.m.

"He pulled out a black pistol and demanded money," the FBI said. "The teller provided him with some cash and he exited the bank. He was seen leaving the area in a dark colored, possibly four-door vehicle. "

He then drove off to bitch about kids these days. No, he didn't have The Clash ("Daddy was a bank robber...") on his car stereo. Although like in the song, this robber did not hurt nobody. Or anybody, to be more grammatical than the song.

Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber, or any felony suspect. If you have information about this crime, please call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477).

We'll be seeing a lot more of this what with the Depression and WW3 lingering. The UK 's banks have bullet proof glass in front of the tellers at the banks; Coming to a US bank near you.

Use of the "b" word in this article was totally not required for good journalism.
