WPTV The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a gas station robbery suspect who was caught on camera with what appears to be a drawn-on beard as a disguise. The incident happened at the Holiday Gas Station located at 1937 US 19 in Holiday. Deputies describe the suspect as a heavy-set white male in his 30s or 40s wearing a red bandana, long dark hair up in the bandana and a green military-style pilot jumpsuit. The suspect was wearing clear gloves and left the scene in a tan or brown Toyota extended cab truck and headed south on US 19. It is unknown if the suspect got away with any cash. No injuries were reported.
This is what Bruce Springsteen would call a “Brilliant Disguise”, a Florida man robbed a gas station, but first drew a goatee on himself in magic marker. Hopefully he had the foresight to not use a permanent marker, because as we saw in a recent mugshot out of Arkansas, that stuff simply does not come off. So this man may have got the cash he needed to get his wife or kids the Christmas presents they desired, but at the same time, he might be spending the next week scrubbing the skin off his face so he can go into public without a ridiculous looking goatee drawn on his face that identifies him as a robbery suspect. If you are going to commit a crime, do not wear a disguise so ridiculous that it’s picked up by popular blogs, and goes viral.
