Bank robbery in children’s fancy dress fails miserably

27 Jul 2010

A man who tried to rob a bank in America wearing
children’s fancy dress
failed this week after being caught by
booby-trapped money.

Dennis Hawkins, 48, sported a clown costume, a blonde wig and –
rather bizarrely – fake breasts to attempt the heist in
Pennsylvania on Saturday (July 24th 2010).

However, after holding up cashiers with a toy gun and making off
with a bag of cash, Hawkins’ master plan began to fail.

He attempted to steal a car but its owner jumped out with the
keys, while the bag of money exploded with red paint, clearly
marking him as the guilty party.

Police arrived as the would-be robber sat in the vehicle to
contemplate his next move and took him off to prison.

This comes in the same week as another thief, this time in New
York, successfully pulled off a bank robbery by disguising himself
Star Wars fancy dress
