Houston woman arrested in connection with string of bank heists

A Houston woman linked to several bank robberies was arrested over the weekend. 

Brittney Alexander, who was initially charged with robbery nearly two week ago after a Chase Bank heist, was caught and booked into jail Saturday, records show. 

On May 1, two women walked into the J.P Morgan Chase on Silber Road and rushed to the teller, who asked for a debit card to access the account. 


But instead, one of the women handed over a threatening note.

“This is a robbery,” the slip said. “I have a gun. Give me all the money and nobody will get hurt! Put it in an envelope.” 

The teller complied and doled out around $1,000 in cash. The women fled the scene, loot in hand. 

Witnesses later identified one of the suspects as Alexander, and authorities linked the case to four other similar incidents, according to court papers. 

Prosecutors initially filed a robbery charge on May 11, then later added one count of failure to identify.

Alexander is now in the City of Houston jail facing an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon charge, according to online jail records.
