Help Catch "The Leprechaun Bandit" Before He Robs A 6th Bank

A bank robber nicknamed “The Leprechaun Bandit” has been sticking up banks in Texas and the Fort Worth police are desperate to identify him. We’re not a crime blog or anything but “Leprechaun Bandit,” was too catchy to resist. Plus he’s robbed 5 banks and that’s not cool with us. After the 3rd bank you know it’s affecting the customer service. Anyone who wears a Notre Dame hat is likely to get tackled by an overzealous guard. From the Star-Telegram:

Lt. Dean Sullivan, police spokesman, said the freckled bank robber with reddish-brown hair earned his nickname because of the “Luck of the Irish” green and white baseball cap that he sometimes wears featuring a shamrock and leprechaun.

In the latest robbery, police say the man walked into the OmniAmerican Bank at 1000 Pennsylvania Ave. about 11:45 a.m., handed the teller a note demanding money and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Eventually his luck will run out,” Sullivan said.

If you know the “Leprechaun Bandit,” call the Fort Worth robbery unit at 817-392-4370 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-TIPS (817-469-8477). Don’t worry too hard about it though, your money is FDIC insured against Leprechaun related crime. —MEGHANN MARCO
