5 Valley Bank Robbers Wanted by the FBI -- and Their Disguises
But so much more goes into it: what to wear, how to conceal your face, and how to haul away your loot. Styles vary, and there is some creativity involved, as we discovered on www.bandittrackerarizona.com, an FBI-sponsored website. Check out how five Valley bank robbers caught on camera tried to conceal their identity.
Perhaps a gentleman bored with retirement? Short on cash? Whatever his backstory, this 50- to 60-year-old man decided to go with the ball cap and sunglasses to mask his identity.
Not the best disguise, but he was low-key with a pair of loose blue jean shorts and untucked button-up shirt (likely to help conceal the gun he reportedly had stuffed down his shorts) a pair of sneakers. And, he smartened it up a bit with a brown leather binder that subtly says "I'm not here to rob you."
Oh, but he was.
About 11 a.m. May 16, he walked into a Comerica Bank at 925 North Dobson Road in Mesa, displayed his weapon, and demanded the teller stuff his binder with cash. The teller did and he took off in a mid-size silver or light blue SUV.
