The FBI's Houston office is trying to catch a bank robber dubbed the "Mummy Marauder" before the city's news outlets can use the headline "The Mummy Returns." The FBI says the robber had white gauze wrapped around his face and arms when he robbed the First Convenience Bank in Harris County on Friday the 13th, NBC reports. The suspect, described as a 5-foot-11-inch black man in his early 20s, also wore a wig and a baseball cap. The FBI says he threatened a teller before escaping in a black Mitsubishi Montero SUV with an undisclosed amount of money. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the suspect's arrest, reports CNN. (In July, the FBI captured the "Pink Lady Bandit.")
