Authorities in Texas allege that a father and his two adult children are responsible for the robbery of multiple banks. Authorities arrested the fifty-year-old man, and his twenty-year-old son, and eighteen-year-old daughter after authorities recognized the father and son from surveillance footage.
Police claim they had seen the father and son previously, in a surveillance video of a bank robbery from October 1, 2012 of a bank outside of Houston. Police contend that the footage shows a younger man with a fake mustache and an older suspect in a painter’s mask, with both suspects wearing sunglasses, hats, and an orange traffic vest on.
After reviewing the footage, detectives went to a local hardware store and found similar orange vests for sale. Police reviewed the footage from the hardware store, and identified the father and son pair purchasing items that were allegedly later used to conceal their identities during the robberies.
In California, robbery is codified under Penal Code Section 211. It states in pertinent part that “robbery is the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear.” Robbery is a felony, and will result in a strike if convicted.
