Bank Robbery Suspect Dresses Up As An Elderly Woman To Steal Money

Bank Robbery Suspect Dresses Up As An Elderly Woman To Steal Money

Police are searching for a man who disguised himself as an elderly woman while robbing a bank in Georgia.

This Mrs Doubtfire sequel looks lit.

However, this isn’t the worst disguise a thief has ever come up with, believe it or not.

McDonough Police say a man is on the run after robbing Chase Bank earlier this week, according to Patch.

The suspect is described as a six-foot-tall slim man, wearing a floral dress, white sneakers, orange latex gloves, a white wig and a dark face mask or neck ‘gator’ at the time of the heist. 

"The suspect entered into the bank and presented a note demanding money. The suspect told the teller he had a gun. After receiving the money he left the bank," police said.


Authorities also said the thief left in a small white van, which could possibly be a Lexus.

As images emerge of the suspect, the internet is howling over the bizarre occurrence.

One user wrote: “The funny part in all of this is, no one saw his strange getup as 'ODD' in any way. Just normal for Atlanta.”

While another said: “Now you know…. I would have already pushed the panic button before she/ he reached the counter.”

A third person joked that the man even resembled something out of a Tyler Perry movie, writing: “MADEA ROBS THE BANK.”

While another commented: “Thieves will go to any ways and means to steal. Relief that no one was hurt.

“Hoping they find this man real soon. He’s going to do it again and get aggressive.”

However, this isn’t the worst disguise a thief has ever come up with. 

In 2009, two men, Matthew Allan McNelly, 23, and Joey Lee Miller, 20, fashioned hooded sweatshirts as they broke into an apartment in Carroll, Iowa.

While police got the call, nothing seemed too out of the ordinary for the run-of-the-mill break-in.

However, when police tracked down McNelly and Milley, they noticed something unusual: the two burglars had scribbled ‘ski masks’ with sharpies on their faces to 'conceal' their identity.

I mean, seriously, even for a Home Alone movie, this is far-fetched. 

Carroll Police Chief Cayler told CNN at the time: "We're very skilled investigators and the black faces gave them right away.

"I have to assume the officers were kind of laughing at the time.

"I've never heard of colouring your face with a permanent marker."
