Boynton Beach Looking for Hipster Bank Robber

The Great Depression had Bonnie and Clyde. This not-quite-great depression of modern times has the gentleman to the right. Yup, a cheap knockoff. I think that's a trilby he's wearing, which would have looked better on Clyde Barrow, circa 1933.

From the Boynton Beach Police:

Boynton Beach Police and the FBI are investigating an armed robbery this afternoon to a Bank of America branch at 105 N. Congress Ave.

The robber, who was wearing a pinstripe suit and pinstripe fedora (Editor's note: I think it's a trilby; fedoras have a wider brim than this hat) walked into the bank at 12:21 p.m., handed the teller a note and displayed a silver and black handgun. He took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Once outside the bank, he removed the suit jacket and pants and fled in jeans and a white T-shirt. He was seen leaving in a white older-model vehicle, possibly a Ford. He is described as a white male in his late teens, early 20s; at least 5-foot-8, slim build and acne or freckles on his face. No one was injured during the robbery.

Anyone who recognizes this man is urged to call Detective Juan Montoya at 561-716-3284, 1st Sgt. Paul Sheridan at 561-742-6133 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also be submitted via bbpd.org.
