Police: Texas bank standoff over, hostages safe

A hostage situation at a Texas bank ended Friday afternoon with all hostages safe and suspects in custody, said Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department.

Lopez said that two armed men had taken an undisclosed number of employees and customers hostage during the bank robbery Friday morning in suburban Houston.

The first suspect was taken into custody in the early stages of the robbery when there was an exchange of gunfire, detectives told CNN affiliate KPRC. The second suspect was taken into custody at the end of the standoff,
police said.

    @Martin Luthor-
    "Good people" don't rob banks, even if they are caught up in a "bad economy." I know plenty of good people who lost their good jobs. Now they feed their familes by working 2 and sometimes 3 lower paying jobs. It sucks that they have to work so hard just to barely survive, but it's more dignified than taking a handout, and more honest than robbing banks. I think more law abiding citizens should get training in the safe use of handguns, and carry weapons to thwart the ass-monkeys that put us at risk by robbing banks. I live in a rural county that had three bank robberies in the 2 decades leading up to 2010. Then we had 3 robberies in 2010 alone. I say send the bad guys to Hell, and get some good target practice to boot.

    All networked devices have IP addresses....computers dont just talk to each other, you have to have something to identify it with. Switches, Routers, you name it, every port on it has an address. Take Cisco classes....you'll have your eyes opened up to what they can track and do.

    To @Havok, why would someone want to waste more than $3 dollars in gas to look for their bank if they don't live close to one?! its not like everyone's bank is on every corner like a Starbucks! so instead i would go stop at my bank on my way home if i knew i needed to pull some cash out so i don't feed the ATM my $3 dollars i could use for other things like gas!

    With 14 million and counting unemployed in the USA bank robberies will become more frequent. People have mouths to feed and bills to pay and you dont know that these people involved in the attempted heist were good people caught up in a bad economy. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Well that is unless your in the higher tax bracket and you just got a tax break while the poor got nothing.

    To @Havok, why would someone want to waste more than $3 dollars in gas to look for their bank if they don't live close to one?! its not like everyone's bank is on every corner like a Starbucks! so instead i would go stop at my bank on my way home if i knew i needed to pull some cash out so i don't feed the ATM my $3 dollars i could use for other things like gas!

    With 14 million and counting unemployed in the USA bank robberies will become more frequent. People have mouths to feed and bills to pay and you dont know that these people involved in the attempted heist were good people caught up in a bad economy. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Well that is unless your in the higher tax bracket and you just got a tax break while the poor got nothing.

    With 14 million and counting unemployed in the USA bank robberies will become more frequent. People have mouths to feed and bills to pay and you dont know that these people involved in the attempted heist were good people caught up in a bad economy. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Well that is unless your in the higher tax bracket and you just got a tax break while the poor got nothing.

    @phillmidong
    Yes your prepaid phone has an ip address. Any device that connects to a network does. And don't think that just because its prepaid you can't be tracked. Chances are you had to show ID and/or provide some personal info somewhere along the way, either at the time of purchase or the time of activation if they did not occur at the same place. If that phone has a gps you can be tracked. If it doesn't you can still be located by triangulating your phone signal, we do it for the police all the time.

    @joeblow
    Yes most ip addresses are dynamic, meaning they change-but that's usually only every 24 hours. In the event that your ip changes by just rebooting and reconnecting, isp's record and log that information as well as your mac address (its like an electronic serial number that never changes).

    Moral of the story...NOTHING done online is anonymous no matter how much you might try.

    A hostage situation at a Texas bank ended Friday afternoon with all hostages safe and suspects in custody, said Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department.

    Lopez said that two armed men had taken an undisclosed number of employees and customers hostage during the bank robbery Friday morning in suburban Houston.

    The first suspect was taken into custody in the early stages of the robbery when there was an exchange of gunfire, detectives told CNN affiliate KPRC. The second suspect was taken into custody at the end of the standoff,
    police said.

    Why is it that bank robberies never take place at night? You know, when you only have the security system to contend with? I know it takes a small bit of brain, but it's better than your chances in an open bank full of customers with cell phones...

    Money is locked in the vault at night. That's why there are no robberies at night.

    Your front page / top-left story has the caption: "A daylong standoff between police and two armed bank robberies who took hostages ended Friday afternoon in Pearland, Texas, a police official said.'. It might be a good idea to have someone at CNN proof read your front page captions.

    Because Nick most banks have timers on vaults which delay entry into them till the next morning. Thus most attempeted robberys happen early in the morning when the bank is first opening...Also because that is when the bank has the most money on hand.

    Also to be technical, a robbery implies you are stealing from someone. If no one was there, it would be a burglary.

    Actually it's not all the hard for a website such as CNN to pull up the IP adress from comments left behind, how do you think websites ban people from commenting? With that information, anyone skilled enough can probably find out everything there is to know about you. Just and FYI, the internet is not as anonymous as you think it is. Just blind for those who don't know how to look.

    @Martin Luthor-
    "Good people" don't rob banks, even if they are caught up in a "bad economy." I know plenty of good people who lost their good jobs. Now they feed their familes by working 2 and sometimes 3 lower paying jobs. It sucks that they have to work so hard just to barely survive, but it's more dignified than taking a handout, and more honest than robbing banks. I think more law abiding citizens should get training in the safe use of handguns, and carry weapons to thwart the ass-monkeys that put us at risk by robbing banks. I live in a rural county that had three bank robberies in the 2 decades leading up to 2010. Then we had 3 robberies in 2010 alone. I say send the bad guys to Hell, and get some good target practice to boot.

    To @Havok, why would someone want to waste more than $3 dollars in gas to look for their bank if they don't live close to one?! its not like everyone's bank is on every corner like a Starbucks! so instead i would go stop at my bank on my way home if i knew i needed to pull some cash out so i don't feed the ATM my $3 dollars i could use for other things like gas!

    With 14 million and counting unemployed in the USA bank robberies will become more frequent. People have mouths to feed and bills to pay and you dont know that these people involved in the attempted heist were good people caught up in a bad economy. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Well that is unless your in the higher tax bracket and you just got a tax break while the poor got nothing.

    All networked devices have IP addresses....computers dont just talk to each other, you have to have something to identify it with. Switches, Routers, you name it, every port on it has an address. Take Cisco classes....you'll have your eyes opened up to what they can track and do.

    To @Havok, why would someone want to waste more than $3 dollars in gas to look for their bank if they don't live close to one?! its not like everyone's bank is on every corner like a Starbucks! so instead i would go stop at my bank on my way home if i knew i needed to pull some cash out so i don't feed the ATM my $3 dollars i could use for other things like gas!

    With 14 million and counting unemployed in the USA bank robberies will become more frequent. People have mouths to feed and bills to pay and you dont know that these people involved in the attempted heist were good people caught up in a bad economy. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Well that is unless your in the higher tax bracket and you just got a tax break while the poor got nothing.
