Tall man in drag holds up bank
JOHNSTOWN (AP) — Police say a western Pennsylvania bank robber was long and tall, but probably not named Sally — despite outward appearances.
Instead, police in Richland Township, near Johnstown, believe the robber was a 6-foot, 6-inch man who was wearing a wig and women’s clothes when he handed a teller a note demanding money at the First National Bank branch about 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Police said the suspect was wearing a straight-haired red wig, black dress and shoes, and was carrying a handbag.
Police Chief Michael Burgan said the bank still has to run an audit to determine how much money is missing.
Police wouldn’t say if the man had a weapon, but said nobody was hurt as the teller complied with the robber’s demand.
