    That's a GREAT picture of the guy; at first I almost thought it was a glamor shot! His arrest can't be far away now.

    This guy is the opposite of brilliant. I wonder if he will try to return to the bank to try and retrieve the surveillance equipment like the guys in Fayetteville so wisely did.
