Clad in a beige-and-black-checkered blazer and wearing a black-white-and-beige-checkered golf hat, the man walked into the Ivanhoe Avenue bank branch at approximately 10:10 a.m. He approached a teller station and handed the teller a note demanding money.

Upon receiving a sum of money, the man escaped on foot. The robber was wearing an oxygen tank in an over-the-shoulder bag and had an oxygen tube affixed to his nose. The suspect is white, 6’4” tall, medium build, with liver spots on his skin. He wore a light-colored shirt and slacks as well as prescription eyeglasses.

“It’s very unusual,” says FBI special agent Darrell Foxworth. “I think it’s the first time this year we’ve had a suspect 70 to 80 years old.”

Ma...gramps got out of his room again!

The first septuagenarian with oxygen tank just THIS YEAR? What's going on over at Casa Manana?

Reminds me of the father on that Brit comedy Keeping Up Appearances. That guy was always streaking or pulling a sword on someone.

Good for him. We've continually robbed his generation. He's just returning the favor. Go grandpa go!

Sept. 16, 2009

Seriously. That oxygen bill cannot be slight.

Sept. 16, 2009

Well, it wasn't the oxygen bill. It was--the mortgage. Anyone surprised?

Almost sounds similar to my armed robbery....
