The family that robs banks together, gets arrested together. Perhaps that could become a new idiom after a father, son, and daughter in Texas were arrested for the crime.
Ronald Scott Catt, 50, his 20-year-old son Hayden Scott Catt and 18-year-old daughter Abigail “Abby” Catt were all arrested last week and charged in connection a bank robbery. ABC News reports the trio is officially accused of robbing 1st Community Credit Union in Katy, Texas last month. KHOU Houston reports that the father and kids could be responsible for as many as six other bank robberies.
The family is originally from Portland, Oregon. Their crime spree likely started there as officials suspect their involvement in five robberies in that area. Ronald Scott Catt and Hayden Scott Catt were both implicated in one other Texas bank robbery as well. The father, son, and daughter were implicated in the other robberies because they used similar disguises.
Police say that Ronald and Hayden entered the bank with bright orange safety vests and dark sunglasses. Hayden Scott Catt wore a fake mustache, while his father Ronald wore a painters mask. Abby Catt drove the getaway car. The men were armed at the time of the robbery.
Detectives were able to arrest the father and kids bank robbing trio after examining surveillance tapes at an area Home Depot store. The tapes show the family purchasing the items used in the bank robberies.
The father and son were arrested together and placed in the Fort Bend County Jail with bonds of $140,000. The daughter was arrested later the same day and placed in jail with a $100,000 bond.
