  1. WTF. Don’t robbers even wear masks anymore?

  2. Wow, he didn’t bother to disguise himself at all, did he?

  6. Earlier the description was 6-1 so I believe that’s 6 feet, no inches. I published this very quickly on my way out of the landmarks board to get to another meeting so skipped over it – will doublecheck before fixing … TR

  7. How do you know there’s no disguise? Could be a 17-year-old white girl.

  8. I agree with MargL- similar build and similar features… I still never understood (even after working as a teller for a while) why in the world people bother robbing banks. You’d get away with very little money since there are protocols for keeping only a specific amount of cash in the teller drawer at a time, and it’s immediately FBI jurisdiction (and federal jail time). Stupid.

  9. Did the police catch the guy who robbed this same bank about 6 months ago?

  10. He’s lucky they don’t have guards anymore. Even chance he might have been shot. What a piece of s**t. Too lazy to even disguise himself while stealing other people’s money, knowing there’s a camera pointed at him.

  14. Could be an “off-leash” dog in disguise disobeying his owners voice commands?
