FBI: Ohio bank robbery suspect lowers hood when told

Published: Thu, May 19, 2011 @ 10:40 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The FBI says an obedient Ohio bank robbery suspect left authorities with good surveillance photos because he lowered his hood when told.

FBI Special Agent Harry Trombitas says the man in his mid-20s entered a Columbus PNC Bank on Wednesday with his dark hood up, covering most of his face. Trombitas says in a statement that the bank has a “no hats, no hoods” policy, so a bank employee told the man to pull his hood down, and he complied.

The FBI says when the suspect got to the counter, he handed the teller a note saying he had a gun and to give him money or he would shoot. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Columbus police had not announced an arrest by late this morning.

Forcing him to pull down his hood may have violated his rights . This would make the surveillance photos inadmissible . He should seek a subculture rights attorney so the legal system doesn't abridge him of his rights .

That crook was so dumb, I don't think he could spell "subculture" let alone figure out to get an attorney. But he'd "lawyer up"; it's just he won't make the connection from "attorney" to "lawyer".

Who said "crime don't pay"? It sure does!
It pays the lawyers, judges, police, bail bondsman and the crook. A big-time "foodchain".

Stan, that would be a ACLU attorney that you would be referring to.
