The FBI is hunting a man known as the “Sticky Note Bandit,” because he robbed dozens of banks in Houston, Texas, in just nine days.
The “Sticky Note Bandit” Has Been Hitting Many Banks Around Houston
In a recent statement from FBI Houston Field Officepeople were informed about the brutality of the robber recently.
The “Sticky Note Bandit’s” first recorded robbery took place on July 5 at the Hancock Whitney Bank in west Houston. It is said that he enters “dressed as a woman” and gives a person “a threatening note written on a sticky note demanding money.”
Specially, he “he was left behind with an incredible amount of money” and did not harm anyone during the robbery.
On July 11, a terrorist struck again and hit a Wells Fargo bank on the city’s east side. Although he followed the same path as before, it didn’t work out for him this time.
“The teller left the location and locked himself in a back room for safety. The suspect remained in the bank for a short time, then fled on foot without any money. No one was injured during the robbery.”
Finally, a Wells Fargo Bank in southwest Houston was robbed two days later (Jul. 13). Sure enough, the “Sticky Note Bandit” “dressed up as a female” and got away with “an undisclosed amount of money.”
