    This guy looks a lot like me.

    For the record, I did NOT rob a bank. Sorry for the confusion.

    a little GPS in the money pack would have nabbed this guy within minutes.

      He may not have gotten away with any money, according to what we first heard from a KCSO Sgt. last Friday, but it’s kind of like burglary – if you break in and don’t take anything, you’re still a burglar; in this case, he’s still a robber – TR

    Unless he is from out of state, he’s toast with that image.

    So he gave them a note which said what? Did he indeed get some loot? Was it a dare ? I dare ya to go and give my friend this note and scare the bleep out of her/him. Wish there was more info about these kind of things.

    • WSB July 18, 2012 (8:29 pm)

      Giving more information could compromise the investigation, and that’s why you don’t get intricate details. The note demanded money. Specific wording, don’t know – TR

    I hope he’s been caught by now! I know a lot of tips have been called in. He belongs in prison he’s a low life heroine addict!

  • mehud7 July 19, 2012 (6:33 am)

    Yeah09-if he is a heroine addict he probably isn’t robbing banks!

  • J19 July 19, 2012 (12:38 pm)

    I didn’t know robbing banks and heroine were mutually exclusive.

  • newnative July 19, 2012 (1:42 pm)

    Some heroines can be high maintenance. Just saying.

    I think it is “brian” from the above post. I’ve watched Law & Order a few times and can recognize when someone is trying to lead us away from the trail…

    I wonder is he knows how to spell stewped. Not too bright trying that nowadays. At BofA yesterday I noticed a camera at each window right about eye level. I wasn’t planning on robbing that bank that day, but if I was….I bet I would have bagged it.

  • Carraig na Splinkeen July 19, 2012 (9:22 pm)
    I have a gub…

  • Sophista-tiki July 20, 2012 (2:17 am)

    ok , off topic, BUT with cameras at every teller you’d think B of A would be able to prove I made that visa payment they claim I didnt make. Duh they’ve got me on video making the payment! .

    Smile for the camera, smartie pants.

Sorry, comment time is over.
