Should Be Easy To Spot...!


I have to admit that this is a good way to disguise yourself, but it would seem to me that It really shouldn't be that hard to locate this particular bad guy!

Of course, I don't know how many big, furry critters they have running around the countryside...but must not be very many if they don't know if it was a monkey suit or a big bear!

Swedish police hunt for bank robber dressed as large, furry animal

POLICE are searching for an armed robber dressed as a large furry animal who outran them after holding up a bank in the Swedish city of Gothenberg.

Swedish newspaper Gotebors-Posten (GP) reported that shots were fired as the unusually-attired perpetrator attempted to rob the bank, located in a large shopping center, late Friday.

"A man in a monkey outfit, or similar, may have been a bear, too, came running with security guards behind him. I thought it was a joke at first, a stunt, but then I walked past the bank and saw the shattered glass," a witness told GP.

Around an hour after the robbery, police found a burning car near the crime scene. Investigations were continuing and no arrests had been made, they said.

I do hope the police catch the large, furry animal that got away! Certainly can't have too many of those critters running around, right?

Coffee on the patio this morning! Is that OK with everyone...?

This happened in my old home town and I still haven´t heard if they have cought the guy.

But it can´t be that hard, how many monkeys (or bears) do they have driving around in cars :-) :-) :-)

Yes coffee here this glorious morning, but I´ll have it on my kitchen stairs :-)

Have a great day my friend!

Hey Christer...
Like you say, how many furry animals do they have driving around?

Maybe you should give them a hand, buddy! Just keep an eye out and the camera ready!

Hey, thanks for coming by today!

Wow times must really be getting bad money wise, when Big Foot or Sasquatch (sp?) starts robbing banks !

Those folks better not come to Canada if they can't tell a bear from a monkey! When one is chewing on your leg it's a little late to figure out which is which.
Coffee all around!

Hey Bob...
The robber sounds like some of the ones we have over here! He might have taken things to a whole new level, though!

I don't think the LEOs in Sweden have as much experience with crooks like this, as the Americans do!

Is that a good thing...or a bad thing?

Hey, thanks for coming by today!


Hey Ian...
I'm afraid that anytime I see a 6 foot tall furry critter coming at me in a dead run...I'm getting out of the way! Probably out of the neighborhood!

I guess you guys in Canada don't have that many of this type, either!

I appreciate you coming by today!

Hey JoJo...
Does sound like he might have been in better shape than the police, doesn't it?

I hope you are having a very good Mother's Day, sweetie!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
