Pink Hoodie Robber breaks the law...of bandit chic

Big photos below.
Last Friday, a presumably unarmed man entered the US Bank on 1801 Jackson Street in Golden, and angrily demanded an undisclosed sum of money from a teller, escaping on foot.

More disturbing than this man's crimes, however, is his complete misunderstanding of bandit chic.

As you can see by the photo below, what stands out about this robbery is the suspect's odd choice of garb: a faded pink hoodie, black training pants with a white stripe down the inseam, pink wayfarer sunglasses and some kind of helmet.

Nonetheless, the pièce de résistance of the robber's ensemble is clearly the jaunty red handkerchief affixed to his neck -- a bold fashion statement even for those not robbing a bank.

Mind you, this kerchief served no disguisement function. As a result, the thief not only missed the opportunity to dress up like a cowboy: He also guaranteed that security-camera footage of his guilty face would be making the Internet rounds. And while it's certainly a daring accessory, the bandana will likely make the suspect easier to identify.

Make sure to look out for the Pink Hoodie robber. He has the same story every time. Pink, or baja hoodie, pink sunglasses, and lookin' for trouble. At least he is a man that has a sense of humor who is also in touch with his feminine side.


They'd probably have better luck if they zoomed in on the back logo of the hoodie being worn .

You can find pink hankies anywhere . The hoodie is WAY more identifiable & personal .

Duh !
