It's Not Cheap to Mask Your Bank Robbery

On the other side is the Richardson PD bulletin mentioned here this morning, in which police say they're looking for the "Handsome Guy" bandit who's hit six area banks, including ones in Dallas, Irving, Plano and Richardson beginning April 19. Says RPD, his most recent stick-em-up was July 14, when he walked into a First Community Bank on Collins: "He was wearing a suit, sunglasses, and carried a black shoulder bag. He passed a note to the teller and then pointed a black pistol at her while demanding the money." And, of course, he was wearing the mask -- hence the nickname.

Turns out, the maker of the mask -- Cali-based SPFXMasks -- has had its product used in bank robberies in the past. A little more than a year ago, Boing Boing pointed out that this dude used "The Player" to confuse cameras; says here cops only nabbed him "when they spotted a Volvo with its interior splattered with red dye from a dye pack slipped into a bag used to hold the stolen money." And, clearly, you need to hold up a bank to afford the masks in the first place: Handsome Guy sells for $810. Not like the good ol' days. CCA 11-113P Agg Robbery - Various Banks

Dude looks like a woman. He has a funny shaped chest, and narrow sloping shoulders.

Oh, the black guy version is called "The Player." No, that's not profiling *at all.*

Hair seems to be on the uptick as well. Why do the same "handsome man" as every other robber? Even though bald is, um, superhot. And supercool. For summer.

Funny, I was just telling my dad last week about the other robbery with the black guy mask.

A pocket square would really punctuate his sartorial splendor.

My sister-in-law's hand was in one of the surveillance videos shown on NBC 5 last night.

We're all very excited for her.

I'm not gay but "it" moved when I saw his pic.

In addition to the mask, it's kind of obvious the guy is wearing something under his shirt or jacket -- my guess being a Kevlar vest.

Either that, or what we're looking at here is a store mannequin or martial arts training dummy that someone's rigged up and programmed to rob banks. First, the ATM, now this. Dallas continues to lead the world in electronic methods of accessing your cash.

OMG, wouldn't that be a hoot and a half if it turned out to be a woman robbing the banks?  :-O  ;-)

Black people don't rob banks. They rob the currency exchange because banks never give money to blacks.

I dunno. He might look like a bald Paul Lynde (w/o glasses) or Charles Nelson-Reilly (w/ glasses).

What if "she" had on man-like gloves?  Huh?    It's something to think about.
