(CBS) - Police say they believe a father, son and daughter accused of robbing a Texas bank last month are linked to six other bank robberies stretching across two states, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.

Ronald Catt, 50, his 20-year-old son Hayden Catt and 18-year-old daughter Abigail Catt were taken into custody on Nov. 9 for robbing 1st Community Credit Union on Oct. 1.

The station reports that investigators said the father and son entered the bank with guns and wearing orange traffic vests and dark sunglasses. Ronald Catt wore a painter's mask while Hayden Catt wore a fake mustache. Abigail Catt drove the getaway vehicle, deputies said.

According to KHOU, police arrested the father and son at an apartment in the southeastern city of Katy. They were placed in the Fort Bend County Jail with bonds of $140,000. Abigail Catt was reportedly later arrested and set on $100,000 bond.

Based on their disguises, the station reports that investigators were able to link the suspects to other bank robbery cases, including an August robbery of Comerica Bank in Texas. Deputies said the family's alleged crime spree began in their home town of Portland, Ore., where police believe they may have committed as many as five bank robberies before moving to Texas.

Investigators said they arrested the suspects after reviewing security footage from a nearby Home Depot, which showed the family purchasing orange traffic vests and surgical masks for disguise before the robberies took place, reports KHOU.
