Dude Wearing Winnie The Pooh Shirt Robs Bank

By Robert Paul Reyes


"The FBI and Park Ridge police on Tuesday were searching for a gunman who robbed a Chase Bank branch in the northwest suburb last week.

The robber, dubbed the `Winnie the Pooh bandit,` wore a long-sleeve, navy blue sweat shirt depicting the fictional bear when he robbed the bank.",0,5705276.story

Surveillance tape captured the image of tough-looking guy sporting sunglasses, and a Winnie the Pooh shirt. It`s disconcerting to witness a tough guy wearing a shirt depicting the lovable bear taking a nap.

I`m not a bank robber, and I don`t think like one, but if you`re going to rob a bank wouldn`t you want to look as inconspicuous as possible? A witness may not be able to describe the robber`s facial features, but he will be able to tell the cops: Dude was wearing a Winnie the Pooh shirt.

Here`s a description of the creep: White/male, 35 - 40 years of age, 6`0 tall, 225 pounds, with a medium build.

If you live in the Chicago area and you think you know who the perp is, call the cops.
