White Bank Robber Paints Skin BLACK To CONFUSE COPS!!!
People wear masks to hide their identity when committing a crime, but some are clever to take it a step further and hide their race.
A bank robber suspected to be white, apparently painted his skin to appear black. Here is what WBIR reported..
|A bank robber may have worn makeup to disguise himself as a black man.
Police say surveillance cameras caught quality images of the robber, showing a face that appeared shiny and waxen, as if he were wearing heavy makeup during the heist.
"He may have been trying to disguise his race," said Don Aaron, spokesman for Metro police.
Police said the man left the bank with a wad of cash in his left hand and his gun in his right. He ran behind the bank and fled in a white, mid-'90s Pontiac Grand Prix.
The man's face initially confused police, who first put out alerts to look for a black male with thin build. But a closer look at the surveillance footage showed that the man's face looked odd
"There are certain features in the face that appear Caucasian," Aaron said.
"So the race of this figure is unknown."
Imagine this happens more often and nobody just picked up on it. The picture above is an example of someone else who tried the exact same thing.
