Friendswood Police are asking residents to look for a man who allegedly robbed Texan Bank at 105 E. Parkwood Drive in Friendswood just before 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 21. Not only could he be recognized by sight, he also could be identified by smell.
Police describe the man as 5 feet 8 inches between 40 and 60 years of age with a gray beard smelling of stale beer, body odor and cigarettes.
According to Police officials, he entered Texan Bank acting as if he was going to cash a check but handed the teller a letter demanding money. The teller told police that it was believed the man had a gun.
Witnesses reported the man wore faded red and white striped button-down shirt with khaki pants or jeans and a white cap. He walked with a limp and witnesses reported the odor he was emitting. They reported the suspect left in a blue “beat up” Toyota Camry.
Police and bank officials did not report the amount of money the suspect took with him.
If anyone has any information about this bank robbery suspect, please contact Friendswood Police at 281-996-3300.
