A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the robber's arrest.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Kenansville Police Department at 910-296-0369.

    Hater like Darth Vader: My post was somewhat sarcastic as to banning hoodies and baggy pants...of course that's a ridiculous statement if meant to be serious. My point was that most everytime you see crimes such as this the perps are dressed similarly...hoodies and baggy jeans. My thought is that many wear these similar style clothes so that they can blend in and be difficult to identify. Most of the time the law ends up looking for someone wearing a hoodie and baggy jeans. They drive around and see most everyone around wearing hoodies and baggy jeans. Perhaps it's a way for those in high crime areas to create this situation and shield themselves.

    Fatchanceimwrong: You're actually wrong this time. That's almost as crazy as saying we should ban black people because the guy is black.

    But either way, he looks like a beat up midget, so maybe he needs the money more than the people at the bank.

    Yeah, we should ban clothing in a free society. That makes everyone safer, comrade.

    Just outlaw hoodies and baggy jeans. It seems like that's what just about all of these criminals wear. Ban them and the criminals won't have a clue how to rob anyone.
