Jan 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a bizarre development that has taken the cops in Austria by surprise a bank robber is suing a mask that makes him look like President Barack Obama. The cops are on the lookout for this robber. The cops report that he has committed half a dozen bank robberies since 2008. He last made the robbery at Handenberg. He stole around 10,000 euros in his latest attempt. In July 2009 he looted a bank and stole 40,000 euros. It was from December of 2009 that he started putting on the mask of the incumbent US president. It is quite obvious that the mysterious thief is a native because his dialect is nowhere close top American.
The cops have noted down the techniques adopted by this so called Obama robber. He uses a new car for robbery each time. In each of the bank robberies he pus on the mask when the bank is about to close. He also uses a black bag and silver pistol. It is being assumed that this robber maybe from either Bavaria or Inn River region adjacent to the border of Germany. Before using the famous Obama Mask he used the mask of an old man. Last year he failed in his attempt in Kirchheim as he arrived at the bank late and it was closed. However, he was not deterred and looted another bank the very next month.
The CCTV footages show the man wearing a cap outside a bank. It is not known why he uses the mask resembling the US president. He is very swift in his actions say the bank employees who saw him.
