Police Not Fooled By Robber’s Tape Disguise

NASHUA, NH — Police said they saw through the surgical tape that a city man put over his face before trying to rob his neighborhood bank. They arrested the 49-year-old man on a felony robbery charge Thursday.

Employees at St. Marys Bank called police Wednesday afternoon to report that a man wearing tape on his face had demanded cash from a teller.

The man didn’t claim to have any weapon, and left before police were called, The Telegraph reported.

The bank turned over video from security cameras, and a detective recognized the man from prior arrests.

    That is as dumb as three robbery suspects pulling over a squad to ask directions on how to get back to Chicago from the suburb they just committed the robbery in.

    What about the guy who used Duct Tape to cover his face to rop a gas station? That one beats all of these to me.

    These were funny. The McDonald's guy should (and is) get into trouble for using 911 for the wrong reason! I personally liked the tape-faced bank robber! What an idiot! lmao
