FBI: Ohio bank robbery suspect lowers hood when told

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.
