Dude Dons Wig, Fake Breasts And Clown Pants To Rob Bank

By Robert Paul Reyes

"It didn`t take a lot of great detective work for Swissvale police to find and arrest a North Braddock man charged with robbing a Citizens Bank branch Saturday morning.

bank robberPolice Chief Greg Geppert said officers arrested Dennis Hawkins, 48, of North Braddock as he sat in a parked car at a service station at Washington Street and Monongahela Avenue wearing an outlandish disguise and covered in red dye that exploded all over him when he tried to open the money he took from the bank.

Mr. Hawkins first drew attention at the Giant Eagle supermarket in Edgewood Towne Centre. He described him as a black man with facial hair who was wearing a female blonde wig, a sweater with fake breasts under it and clown pants." Read more

When planning a bank robbery a professional thief will make sure he has a reliable getaway car, a fear-inducing gun, and an inconspicuous wardrobe so he can blend in with the crowd.

This clown had no getaway car (he tried to carjack a woman`s vehicle), a toy BB gun, and he was wearing fake breasts, female blond wig, and clown pants.

It didn`t take Sherlock Holmes to nab this hapless bank robber, he was sitting in the car he tried to carjack. The owner of the vehicle, had run away with the car keys and called the cops.

The cops should let this clown keep his fake breasts and blond wig -- he`s gonna be somebody`s wife in prison.
