‘Man Hands’ Robber Just Won’t QuitMay 1st, 2009 by josh farley
And so continues the exploits of one goofy bank robber, whose disguise — dressing as a woman — seems to fool no one.
And yet authorities can’t catch him. At least, not yet.
The man dubbed the “Man Hands Bandit” by the FBI, has struck banks in Poulsbo, Edmonds and North Seattle. And on Thursday, he hit a Shoreline bank. He always has a note, and seems to escape on foot (though his first robbery there was an alleged getaway driver).
As Christine Clarridge, Seattle Times reporter points out, most robbers try to be obscure in their appearance so not to attract attention. A man badly dressed as a woman, however, attracts lots of attention.
And still, he gets away.
