Man Robs Citizen's Bank Disguised As A Tree

A man robbed a Citizen’s Bank in Manchester, New Hampshire dressed as a tree, according to the Union Leader. His clothing has been described as “adorned with tree branches held on by duct tape,” and it was noted that “His short, dark hair and mustache were clearly visible between the leaves.”

The paper sent a reporter to the man’s address where residents “laughed about the incident” but “refused to discuss it.”

He did not use a weapon and has been charged with one count of robbery.
