Bank Robber Uses Child's Bike as Getaway Ride

Bank Robber Uses Child's Bike as Getaway Ride

One bank robber in Missouri City didn't think his crime all the way through to the end.

Earlier this month a man went into the Amegy of Bank of Texas located at 5820 Hwy 6 in Missouri City.  He pulled out a gun, demanded money from the bank’s teller, and received an undisclosed amount of cash. 

The robber exited the bank and hopped on his “getaway” ride of choice, a child-size BMX bicycle, then peddled away. 

FBI Houston and Missouri City Police call him the BMX Bandit.   He is described as a Caucasian or Hispanic male about 5’10” and 200 pounds. 

At time of the robbery he was wearing a black hat, black sweat shirt, gray sweatpants, gray tennis shoes, and white gloves.   No injuries were reported.   

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).  There is a reward for up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest. All calls will remain anonymous.
