Trickle-Down Economics: Bank Robber So Successful He's Hired Help

Help wanted: Bank robbery is a growing field
Who says it's a tough job market? All it takes is a little success and employers will start hiring.

Ask the dude who's wanted in at least seven local bank robberies since November. Let's put it this way: He's hiring.

His latest escapade, at a Bank of America in the 22600 block of Tomball Parkway yesterday, featured not just one but two new employees. The stimulus is working!

Our man entered the bank and asked for a deposit slip, then walked away. A (newly hired) accomplice "walked up to the same teller and handed her a threatening note which demanded cash," the FBI says. "While the teller was removing some cash from the drawer, the other robber walked up to a different teller, and also gave that teller a note which demanded money."

They then escaped with the help of a third person, who drove the getaway car (a "mid-2000 year black Chevrolet Impala," the FBI says.)

No one was hurt.

The descriptions:

The first robber is described as a black male in his early 20s, 5'8, with a thin build. He wore a black long-sleeved shirt, dark slacks, a dark beanie hat and sunglasses. The second robber is described as a black male, early 20s, 5'08", with a thin build. He wore a white long-sleeved shirt, dark slacks, and clear glasses with a black frame.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward. Anyone with info should call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.

Robbing banks is like taking candy from a baby now days. Even a Grandma with no gun can do it.

Step up your security Bank of America because getting ganked by the E is a lesson. Your descriptions are wrong, the real perp is approximately 5'6 and built like a tank.


The horrible racist that would try to pin this on THE BLACK MAN, is an abomination to the lord.They were probably trying to fill out employment applications, when THE WHITE MAN took it upon himself to use this elaborate ruse. To pull an inside job and blame the BLACK MAN, mean while absconding with their ill gotten gains.


Dude shut up "quannell" I cant stand black people that constantly think all white people are racist and out to get them
