It happened Friday morning at the bank, located on FM 518 and Highway 288.

Police say that the man walked into the bank, fired shots into the ceiling, and had everyone lie on the ground.

The suspect then climbed over the counter and had the tellers pull the money out and place it into a large black trash bag, say authorities. They say the thief then fled on foot with about $37,000 in case.

The thief was wearing a dark blue long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, tan shoes, dark ball cap and sunglasses. He also covered his face with a bandana.

Investigators say the suspect is approximately 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, and has a slender build.

Anyone with information on the heist is encouraged to contact the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department at (281) 331-9000.
