    Someone has to know this man. Even wearing shades, its a good picture. He did not cover up too much.

    Well, give that his "diguise" isn't all that ingenious, I have a feeling he will be turned in soon.

    "Hey at least someone is doing something to get his/her money back from the greedy banks"

    I'm pretty sure they've never given a dime to this bank.

    "A description of the suspect was expected to be released later Thursday afternoon". So in the meantime, while the public is waiting for a description, the suspect is leaving the county, what happen broadcasting the information when it happens, not 2 hours later
