Ski Mask Gives Bank Robber Away

Compiled From Wire Services
 

The robber’s first mistake may have been holding up a bank next door to the West Division of the Fort Worth Police Department. The second one was wearing a ski mask over his face as he stood in line behind another customer.

No one - not even the security guards - really paid any attention, officials said, until the first customer moved to another line and noticed the masked man sling a bag onto a teller’s counter.

When the robber told the customer to mind his own business, the customer decided to mosey over to the Police Department and tell officers about a robbery in progress at the NationsBank next door. The robber was quickly arrested.
