Possible “Jugging” Incident Reported in Fulshear

(FULSHEAR) – Fulshear police say a Wells Fargo customer was likely the victim of “jugging” after withdrawing money from the bank at 6445 FM 1463.

Suspect vehicle.

Police say the victim withdrew cash at the bank around 2 p.m. then drove across the street to Shipley Do-nuts in the 6300 block of FM 1463. While inside the store, a gray SUV pulled into the empty spot directly behind the victim’s vehicle.


A man, unknown race, thin build, around 5'10" and 170 lbs., wearing a bright orange hoodie with the hood up and gray sweatpants, approached the passenger side of the victim's vehicle and smashed the window and stole the cash from the glove box. There may have been a second suspect's vehicle involved, which was described as a dark black or dark blue SUV. The suspect got inside one of the vehicles after stealing the cash and both vehicles left the scene.


Police say the victim in this case was likely watched as he left the bank and then followed to the parking lot across the street. This tactic is known as “jugging,” which is when a thief waits at a bank, check-cashing store, or ATM for someone to withdraw paper money. The thief then follows the customer outside the establishment before taking the money from the victim or breaking into the person's vehicle, most often at a new location.
