BOLO for a tree?

Be On the Look Out for a tree?

Bank Robber Dressed As A Tree Caught In N.H.

(WBZ) MANCHESTER, NH Police say they've caught the man who dressed up as a tree and robbed a bank in Manchester, New Hampshire.

A man duct-taped tree branches to his head and body and walked into the Citizens Bank on Elm Street just as it opened Saturday.

He did not show a weapon and he left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He didn't show a weapon, what were they afraid of?

Him dropping a pine cone?

So he got their money

by making an "Ash" of himself? I suppose it was a "branch" bank with less security. Anyone who'd do this is probably a "sap" anyway. It's time to "leave". Bye. Happy

Not the kind that "bark" up the wrong tree of course. I suspect, if caught, they'll find the money in his would be his "trunk". Happy
