“Justice League Dropout” strikes two more times

Posted

A man the FBI has dubbed the “Justice League Dropout” due to his Superman ball cap has struck three times now. The first robbery occurred at a JP Morgan Chase bank on Westheimer Road, near Katy; the second at a First Convenience Bank Aug. 24; and the last at another First Convenience Bank in Stafford Aug. 24.

Witnesses describe the suspect as a Black male in his late 30s or early 40s at about 6 feet 1 inch in height with a medium to heavy physique. He wears eyeglasses and clear gloves in addition to a face mask. At the most robbery, his mask had a skull on it reminiscent of the “Ghost Rider” comic book character.

The most recent robbery occurred at about 2 p.m. Aug. 26 where the man presented a demand note and the First Convenience bank employee complied with his demands for money out of fear for her safety. A similar crime took place at each of the prior instances.

The FBI is investigating the incidents and Crime Stoppers of Houston is assisting with a reward.
