Male bank robber wore ‘pink with purple polka dot dress, a pink wig, and sunglasses’
IS 50-year-old Arnell Edwards an idiot? The FBI says Arnell dressed in a “pink with purple polka dot dress, a pink wig, and sunglasses” to rob a bank in New Athens, Illinois, of $1537.
Edwards allegedly passed a bank clerk a red Post-It note reading, “STICK UP ALL MONEY.” He then held a white rag over his mouth and spoke in a “high pitched squeaky voice“. The clerk had great trouble understanding what he was saying.
Police soon found Arnell at a friend’s flat. They found red Post-It notes found inside the apartment.
All circumstantial, of course, yer honour. But if you were going to hold up a bank would you seek to blend in and be utterly bland or dress in such a way that ensures everyone will remember you?
