I saw The Toxic Avenger at the Alley Theatre over the weekend and learned from the program that one of the actors plays Keith Stone, the mullet-wearing Keystone beer guy in their television ads. We had no idea that he was also into robbing banks. Of course, it's probably not him, but that wig sure does look familiar.
According to FBI investigators, a "bad wig bandit" shown above entered the Prosperity Bank at 4065 Bellaire Boulevard at approximately 12:20 p.m. Monday, approached a teller, demanded money and lifted his shirt to reveal a pistol. Smooth.
The teller gave cash to the man, who crammed it in his pockets before leaving on foot. Fortunately, no one was injured during the robbery.
He is described as a white male in his mid thirties approximately 5'7" tall with a medium build and complexion. He wore a long black-haired woman's wig, jeans and a blue-jean colored shirt.
