FBI searching for Texas bank robbers dubbed the 'Country Boy Bandits'
The FBI is asking for the public's assistance in identifying the bank robbers dubbed the "Country Boy Bandits" and their getaway driver.
The robbers believed to be responsible for bank and convenience store robberies in White Settlement, Grapevine and Fort Worth, Texas between June and September 2017, according to the FBI.
The FBI said North Texas Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspects.
According to the FBI, the "Country Boy Bandits" are believed to be responsible for six robberies. Those robberies include:
- Valero gas station, 9400 White Settlement Road, Fort Worth, Texas - June 26
- First Bank of Texas, 301 E. State Highway 114, Grapevine, Texas - June 29
- Pinnacle Bank, 4313 Wester Center Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas - July 10

- Chase Bank, 4420 Golden Triangle, Fort Worth, Texas - August 5
- 7-11 gas station, 3300 Western Center, Fort Worth, Texas - Sept. 26
The FBI said during each robbery, one masked robber would go into the building armed with a firearm and demand money. In three out of the six robberies, the weapon was discharged inside the building. The robbers have used a revolver-style pistol, a .45 semi-automatic handgun, a .40 semi-automatic handgun and a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun, according to the FBI.
The FBI also said at least four different vehicles have been used to perpetrate the robberies. Those vehicles include a black Chevrolet Tahoe with after-market wheels, a blue Saturn Vue and a black Dodge Ram pickup with a silver toolbox in the bed. During each of the robberies, the getaway driver waited in the vehicle while one of the robbers went inside the bank or convenience store. They always wear black stocking masks completely covering their faces.
The suspects are all described as white men. At least one of them is about 5'10" tall, 180 pounds with blond hair.
The FBI said the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information concerning the case is asked to contact North Texas Crime Stoppers at 1-877-373-TIPS or the FBI Dallas Division at (972)559-5000. Tips can also be submitted at tips.fbi.gov and tipsters can remain anonymous.
