Texas police are asking the public for help in identifying a man who allegedly robbed First Bank in Grapevine while wearing a pair of leggings on his head, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Incredibly, surveillance cameras captured the whole thing on tape. The man can be seen carrying a gun and a small white plastic bag, in addition to the leggings over his head.
The robbery took place earlier this week, in late afternoon, as reported by a Texas CBS affiliate.
Grapevine Police are asking for the public's help identifying a bank robbery suspect. Last Thursday (6/29/17) at around 4:15pm, an armed man walked into the First Bank Texas on SH-114 carrying a gun and a small white plastic bag. He told everyone to get on the ground, and demanded money from a teller. As he was loading cash into his bag, he demanded more money from other tellers, then fired a bullet into the floor. He ran out, and climbed into the passenger seat of a black SUV. Nobody was hurt, but the suspect is armed and dangerous. He is described as a white male, early 30’s to late 40’s, 5’11”-6’2”, 175-205lbs. He was wearing a black mask described as a legging without any openings for eyes or mouth, a light-colored Carhartt long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, white New Balance sneakers with black outsole, and latex type gloves. The getaway car is a black Chevrolet SUV, possibly a 2000-2006 Tahoe, with roof rack and no front plate.
