Wells Fargo in Idaho Falls Robbed by a Neck-Brace Bandit

Friday morning, an Idaho Falls Wells Fargo (less than a mile from my house) was robbed.

One thing you should know about the banks in Idaho.... they're not like the banks in metropolitan areas.

Banks I'm used to are covered in plexiglass.  You can't shake hands with your banker, or smell their bad breath.  In Idaho, there are still open spaces and 'friendly environments.'

In other words, bank robber heaven.

No surprise when some dude walked into the bank, snatched a bunch of cash, and then simply walked out.

Here are some pictures of the suspect:



Spring in Idaho is weather in the 50's and 60's and this dude was in a thick coat, fingerless gloves, aaaaaaand.... a neck brace.

A NECK BRACE.  (yeah, not suspicious-looking at all...)

Was he covering up tattoos?  Scars on his neck or chin?  Or maybe he's a car-accident victim trying to pay for his medical bills?

Either way, it made for some interesting news.  And the neck-brace bandit is still at large.... DUN DUN DUUUUNNNN....
Please Share it! :)

What next?!!?

The neck brace is kind of a sweet idea on his part if he's faking the need for it. Using it to cover tattoos is brilliant! I mean, not that I support bank robbery, I just think it's a smart idea.

Should we be blaming Idaho for so trusting? or should we scorn at the lazy thief?
Whatever, he brought shame to thieves everywhere.
Atleast did he carry a gun or water pistol?

lmao... way to keep a low profile. check that flaming hat. I'm sure he hated tossing that thing in a dumpster on the way home.

Just Keepin It Real, Folks! said...

WTH still at large??? No dye on the cash, no neck brace in a dumpster somewhere, noone can ID the dude on wears flames on his hat?????

@meandmythinkingcap: I think he said he had a bomb... but isn't that lame?

I have a bomb, I want mcnuggets. I have a bomb, will you sleep with me? Come on... get creative!

Being originally from Detroit, when I moved to Ft. Walton Beach, FL I still cannot believe the lackadaisical way these ppl go about security. don't get me wrong, I love it here, but where is the bullet proof glass? The "stay behind this line till you're called" line? Where is the armed guard at the door?

Of course I'm also still trying to get over not having bottle deposit also. I don't think i'll ever get used to the ways in a smaller city/town.

meandmythinkingcap said...

You never fail to crack me up ;) maybe he had disguised himself by wearing different scarf or goggles why else he would be at large?

Where I live you can still shake hands with your banker too. Of course the rednecks around here are never bright enough to even cover their faces and are usually caught within 24 hours.

AWESOME!

Truly a sign that insurance premiums are getting too high...

Maybe he thought it'd throw people off? "Oh yeah, and then I'll take the neck brace off and no one will find me".

I hope he needed the cash though. And if he did, I hope he gets away with it. It's just money.

Hahaha - I'm going to go with hiding tattoos. Very tricky, I think...

The Beans said...

Maybe he was working in cahoots with the Barbie bandits from a few years back.

Thank, Q said...

I think he was just thinking ahead. Why risk an accident in a car chase afterwards and get whiplash?

Pish Posh said...

Maybe he has an identifying soul patch.

We get so many robberies in my state too - it's out of control, and not just banks. Pizza places. Everything.

Shockgrubz said...

Haha, I bet he was covering his red neck. It's a bit too far north for that type.

Crack You Whip said...

Probably a flaming tattoo on his neck to match the hat that he ditched. There can't be too many places that sell that hat...I'm already on it.

NJ banks aren't encased in plexiglass, but NYC ones are.

The coat would have been a red flag to me. I see people wearing coats in April/May and I'm thinking, what's wrong with you??

Darby McClintock said...

You know, it's funny you have to say that bankers have to be in plexiglass so we can't smell their bad breath but I'd understand why they'd have such. I guess it's because they're just looking at spreadsheets all day or counting money that their mouth just don't have any movement at all.
