The Most Hapless Robber In New York City?

“Police in New York said a man who robbed a bank was behind an earlier string of failed robberies at city businesses.

Police said the man, who was frequently seen to hold his finger under his shirt to resemble a gun, was also behind recent failed holdups at a Duane Reade on Seventh Avenue, a Mrs. Fields Cookies store on Broadway and multiple Cosi and Starbucks stores.


I understand that if at first you don’t succeed try and try again, but that motto applies to a worthwhile endeavor. This hapless robber should have looked for another way to make a living after his first failed attempt at robbing a business.

No wonder this clown has had a string of failed robberies, holding his finger under his shirt to resemble a gun isn’t going to fool to many store owners.

The cops described the subject as a white male between 25 and 35, in a city of a gazillion residents, that should really narrow it down.
