"He was also described as wearing a green sports jacket, light-colored button-down dress shirt, black slacks and a tan baseball cap." Wearing a sports jacket AND a baseball cap is a bit odd, isn't it? This guy is begging to be caught...and he will.

At my bank there are signs everywhere that no hats and sunglasses allowed. How are these people walking up to the counter in hats or in the recent robbery in parsippany, a mask. I would imagine someone should be telling them to remove their hat when they walk in the door. If nothing else it might throw them off or we can get a better look.

So...does no one from the bank notice this guy and follow him on the way out to see if gets in car and read plates?...is it only in movies that the little button under the teller counter gets pressed to alert security/police? I ask this of all the robberies going on? Makes you wonder if he is working with people in each of these banks.

Yeah it's a bit odd that in every bank "robbery" he has no weapon. He just saunters in with his weird attire and leaves. No one follows or tries to make conversation while authorities show up. Just strange. Also, it's a shopping center so a lot of people would be around to notice, especially if he ran out or something. I just don't understand how he just comes and goes and no one follows him.

banks are trained to let them take the money and go not be a "hero" and let the cops handle it!!!!
John Davies August 29, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Well, I guess the photographs shown here answer that question, but how would the cameras aid in his immediate capture? Unless one happened to fall on his head....
SCOT WAYNE STURZEBECKER August 30, 2012 at 01:51 PM

Dapper bandit? This guy's clothes fit him terribly. Oxycontin is the devil.
Karen Timpanaro September 06, 2012 at 03:57 PM
How come it doesn't say what he was doing at the teller's window? Did he try to rob this bank, did he make some kind of transaction, etc.?
Natalie Davis (Editor) September 06, 2012 at 04:05 PM
We can only report the information that authorities provide. At the Indus American Bank robbery, the suspect reportedly handed the teller a note with instructions. Don't know if that was done in this incident and for now officials aren't saying. Scot Wayne, you have the info we have right here, but if you know something, contact law enforcement and your Patch editor.
