TRY PUTTING THE PANTYHOSE OVER YOUR HEAD NEXT TIME

This one has no numismatic content either, but we just can't
resist curious tales of bank robber exploits.  This one comes
from my hometown of Pittsburgh:

"Two men having coffee on Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill are
accredited with foiling an alleged bank robbery Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities said Chris Hoffman, 28, of Sheraden, entered the Fifth
Third Bank branch on Tuesday dressed as a woman with a blond wig,
green sunglasses, blouse, skirt, pantyhose and purse.

Hoffman approached a teller, handed her a demand note, and fled
after receiving an undetermined amount of money, said authorities.

Employees followed Hoffman out of the bank and alerted two men
having coffee at a nearby shop that the bank had been robbed.

The two men restrained Hoffman until police officers arrived."
