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.
