SAY CHEESE: Poorly-Disguised Man Robs Uptown Bank

It shouldn’t be too hard to ID the guy who the FBI says robbed a PNC Bank at 4400 N. Broadway at 11 o’clock this morning.

He had sunglasses. but they were on top of his head.

He has distinctive tattoos, but he didn’t cover them up.

And the bank gave him a dye pack in the money.

Nonetheless, he’s still on the loose.

Witnesses told police that the man came into the Uptown bank and presented a note to the teller while also saying, “give me money and nobody will get hurt.”

He got the money—about $500 worth—and then fled in an unknown direction.

The offender is described as a white man in mid-40’s to early 50’s. He’s about 6′ tall, 200 pounds, balding, unshaven, has a forearm full of tattoos, and wore a gray T-Shirt with the letters USA written in red, white, and blue letters.
