The search is on for a bank robber who held up a Conroe bank.

The thief struck the Woodforest Bank inside the Kroger at 2222 N. I-45 N Saturday night 7:17.

The suspect, police say, wore bright red lipstick when he walked up to the teller wearing a dark colored wig, dark sunglasses and a woman’s pantsuit.

He reportedly showed the teller a plastic bag and demanded the teller fill it with money.
The bank employee complied and handed the bag with an undisclosed amount of cash back to the thief.

Officers were advised by Kroger management that two of their stores in the Houston area have been robbed in the last few months by a suspect matching the same description.

In both cases, the suspect robbed the Kroger customer service booth inside the stores, not a bank.

The reportedly spoke with no discernible accident and is about 6′ to 6’2″, 160-180 pounds.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Ferraro with the Conroe Police Department at (936) 522-3258.
