According to investigators, the robbery happened Wednesday morning, Oct. 6, at the First Convenience Bank inside Joe V’s grocery store. They say the “Bonnie Hat Bandit” approached the teller with a threatening note before getting away with an undisclosed amount of money.
The FBI describes the “Bandit” as a black man in his 30s, average build, and approximately 6 feet tall. Investigators dubbed him the “Boonie Hat Bandit” because of the olive “boonie” sun hat he was seen wearing on a bank surveillance photos. He was also wearing a black, long sleeve shirt, gray-zippered vest, jeans, and blue latex gloves with a black cloth over his face.
Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, charging and/or arrest of the “Bonnie Hat Bandit”. You can report information by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477), submitting it online at crime-stoppers.org or through the Crime Stoppers mobile app.
