Father, Son and Daughter Arrested in Bank Robberies
(KATY, Texas) -- A father, son and daughter may be responsible for robbing as many as seven banks in two states, according to authorities.
Ronald Scott Catt, 50, and his two children, 20-year-old Hayden and 18-year-old Abby were arrested last week on charges they robbed a credit union in Katy, Texas.
Deputies with the Fort Bend Sheriff’s Office in Texas say the family, which recently moved to the area, could also be responsible for several other robberies in Texas and their native Oregon.
During the Oct. 1 robbery in Texas, two figures, who appear to be Ronald and Hayden Catt, entered the bank in disguises and toting guns before leaving with money and jumping into a getaway car driven by Abby Catt.
The break in the case came when authorities were able to track down the distinctive orange vests the men wore to a local Home Depot. A review of the surveillance tape showed the family purchasing the disguises at the store.
Eric Lundeen told ABC News he knows the Catt family and said they seemed like “really solid community members.”
“He was a single dad. I think he lost his wife and he had the responsibility to take care of his kids and I got to tell you, he was there for them,” Lundeen said.
The father and son duo are being held in the Fort Bend County Jail on $140,000 bonds after being charged with robbery.
Abby Catt’s bond has been set at $100,000.
