Wanted: Repeat bank robber with fondness for hats
Police say the man donned a range of wacky headpieces as he committed eight bank robberies in New York over the course of 2 ½ months
MINEOLA, N.Y. — Police in New York are on the hunt for a prolific bank robber who wears many hats.
Police say the man donned a range of wacky headpieces as he committed eight bank robberies in Nassau County over the course of 2 ½ months ending July 23.
One of the banks was robbed twice.
Surveillance photos show the robber wearing a floppy white hat at one bank. At another, he accessorized with a baseball hat that had a picture of President Barack Obama on it.
And at another, he decided on a hat with a long wig attached.
Police believe it's the same robber in all the photos.
They say the stickup artist typically gives tellers a note threatening violence and demanding cash.
