A Kemah man recently indicted on charges of attempted bank robbery never even made it inside the Liberty County bank he was seen at thanks to a good Samaritan who police said helped thwart his alleged plan.

Jimmy James Mamoth, Jr., 58, is accused of attempting to rob Texas First Bank located on FM 834 in the Liberty County community of Hull on Sept. 27, according to a release from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was indicted and charged with attempted bank robbery Oct. 2.

A good Samaritan and bank customer told police he saw someone dressed in a dark hooded jacket, gloves and wearing a Halloween-style mask and toting a small duffle bag about to enter the bank.

The customer started to honk his horn, to scare off the person. As the person fled to a nearby wooded area, the bank customer followed him and called police, according to the release.

Mamoth was found with a hooded jacket, gloves, mask, duffle bag and an Airsoft style plastic replica gun meant to resemble a Beretta 9mm pistol, according to the release.

"What a great job this citizen did to prevent a bank robbery," U.S. Attorney Joe Brown said in the release. "He didn't just look the other way, he acted. And even though it may have seemed like a small act, it could have saved lives. He is a hero in my book."

If convicted, Mamoth could serve up to 20 years in federal prison. The name of the good Samaritan was not released.

Thank you for helping catch a bad guy. I am retired Fed LEO and retired bank security AVP and know how this affects bank employees. The Good Samaritan is a hero and is greatly appreciated.
