    No one can ID this guy with this picture, his disguise is very good.

    This isn't about the sheriff in Franklin County. It's about this guy robbing a bank. I'm sure his kids would rather have him home for Christmas rather than visiting him in jail. He made a bad choice and he's going to have to pay for it.

    Looks like a person that wanted to get caught. He did not put much effort into a disguise.
