Are you one of those people who nags about how people used to dress up? How people used to take care of their appearance? Like they do in Mad Men? How men like John Dillinger robbed banks in trendy suits and overcoats? Well, you’re in luck with this recent photo release by the FBI.
The FBI Violent Crime Task Force needs the public’s help to track down the bank robber who robbed the First Convenience Bank inside the Kroger at 1990 Old Spanish Trail in Houston, Texas, on Monday. The robber dressed up for the crime—wearing a white dress shirt, black blazer, and a black fedora hat during the robbery. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identity and arrest of the “Fedora Felon”.
At 9:57 a.m., the robber entered the bank and handed a teller a threatening note demanding money. Fearing for their life, the teller placed some cash on top of a black bag the robber brought with him. No weapon was seen by witnesses, and no one was physically hurt during the robbery. The Fedora Felon is described as a black male, 25-30 years old, 6’1”-6’2” tall, 190-200 pounds, with a light brown complexion. He wore a white, collarless dress shirt; black blazer; black fedora hat; and black sunglasses with a gold emblem on the arm of the glasses.
