Fake Bearded Man In Winter Clothes Robbed Bank In Rockford
Here's another story that has "Florida" written all over it but, unfortunately. it happened in Rockford.
Another man robbed a bank in Rockford this week and tried to hide his identity by being creative. According to Rockford Police, the man described as "approximately 20 to 30 years old and 6'0” tall" did not display a weapon but simply handed the teller a note demanding money. Doesn't sound any different than other bank robberies, right? Well, it was.
As you will see in the security camera footage released by Rockford Police, the man was dressed in winter clothing and sporting a fake beard. It was about 80-something degrees outside at that point. Well played, criminal man.
Here's a closer view of his face and the terribly-fake beard.
He may think he was smart but the FBI is also involved in this manhunt. He'll evertually get caught. Hopefully he'll be wearing that fake beard in his mugshot. Per the norm, authorities are encouraging anyone with information to contact police at 815-966-2900 or Crimestoppers at 815-963-7867.
