KATY, Texas, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A father, son and daughter from Texas have been accused of robbing seven banks in two states, authorities said.

Ronald Scott Catt, 50, and his two children, Hayden, 20, and Abby, 18, were arrested last week on charges they robbed a credit union in Katy, Texas, ABC News reported.

Deputies with the Fort Bend Sheriff's Office said the family may be responsible for several other bank robberies in the area.

The trio were caught when authorities were able to track down distinctive orange vests the suspects 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.

Ronald and Hayden Catt 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.
