Says the FBI:
At approximately noon , the suspect entered the banking area within the grocery store and stood in the teller line. He was approached by a bank employee, and he walked off, returning shortly thereafter. He again stood in the teller line, was again approached by a bank employee, and again left the area, this time actually exiting the Randall's store. Moments later, he re-entered the banking area and approached a teller, handing over a note which claimed that he would shoot the teller if she didn't provide him with cash.
No weapon was shown, and no one was physically hurt. He was seen leaving the area on foot.
Maybe he was just shy about his lipstick, or self-conscious about the pretty half-assed attempt at make-up on his face.
At any rate, if you see this guy -- who, despite his disguise, gave up a pretty good look to the security camera -- call Crime Stoppers.
